The Role of Cities in Cohesion Policy 2014-2020

Christine Hamza, Alexandra Frangenheim, David Charles, Stephen Miller

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Urban regions are an important factor in regional development. During the
2007-2013 programming period, the main input provided by cities and urban
areas was at project level. For the 2014-2020 programming period, Cohesion
policy enhances the role of urban areas. Nevertheless, in practice the role of
cities still seems similar in scale. As the programming phase is almost
completed, there is now limited scope for further influence on the design of the
new programmes. The next opportunity to involve cities will be as part of
partnerships during the programming period.
