Operational Programmes

European Social Fund

Operational Programmes (OP) break down the overarching strategic objectives agreed in the Partnership Agreement into investment priorities, specific objectives and further into concrete actions.

In 2014-2020 OPs can be fund-specific or multi-fund. They can cover entire Member States and/or regions. OPs allow selecting, implementing, monitoring and evaluating the individual projects according to the priorities and targets agreed between the Commission and the national or regional Managing authorities.
