2014 marks the start of a new seven-year programming period for EU Cohesion policy. The new rules on the European Structural and Investment Funds for 2014-20 were agreed in December 2013, providing for greater strategic realignment of Cohesion policy with the Europe 2020 strategy, a more integrated approach to programming and a stronger performance orientation. This paper provides a review and assessment of the programming of the 2014-20 Partnership Agreements and Operational Programmes across the EU and reflects on the implications for the future of Cohesion policy.
