Evaluation of the Main Achievements of Cohesion Policy Programmes over the Longer Term in 15 Selected Regions: From 1989-1993 Programme Period to the Present

John Bachtler, Iain Begg, Laura Polverari, David Charles

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

The evaluation scope covers not only ERDF regional programmes but also any national programme implemented in the region as well as, only for Cohesion Countries, relevant Cohesion Fund projects. After more than 20 years of implementation (for the EU15) of this reformed cohesion policy the focus on results, effectiveness and performance has grown significantly in recent years. In this context this evaluation aims to feed the debate about the effectiveness of the policy with empirical evidence on what has actually happened on the ground in cohesion policy over successive programming periods.
