In parallel to the public consultation, the Commission requested 3 studies on both the expenditure and revenue sides of the EU budget, as well as a study on lessons from existing evaluations.
- A Study on EU Spending
The main goal of the Study on EU Spending is to make proposals on the main areas of policy in which expenditure from the EU Budget should be concentrated in future years. It is mainly analysing:
1. What does the current system of EU spending look like, i.e. what are its characteristics and bottlenecks?
2. What are the alternatives and do they mitigate the weaknesses of the current system?
- Financing of the EU Budget - Study
(Trilingual document DE, EN, FR: see table of content)
This study is intended to inform debate on the revenue side. It investigates two main questions: how well does the current system for raising revenue for the EU budget function; and how could it be improved.
- Meta-study on lessons from existing evaluations as an input to the Review of EU spending
