New Architecture for Cohesion Policy 2014-2020

Thu, 06/10/2011

The European Commission has adopted a draft legislative package which will frame cohesion policy for 2014-2020. The new proposals are designed to reinforce the strategic dimension of the policy and to ensure that EUi investment is targeted on Europe's long-term goals for growth and jobs ("Europe 2020").

Through Partnership Contracts agreed with the Commission, Member States will commit to focussing on fewer investment priorities in line with these objectives. The package also harmonises the rules related to different funds, including rural development and maritime and fisheries, to increase the coherence of EU action.

Network for Europe has prepared a special bulletin detailing the proposed new Structural Fundsi draft regulations, to view the brief please visit: Draft regulations 2014-2020 Network for Europe brief
