This report has been prepared with the financial support of the European Commission. The views expressed in this evaluation report are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Commission or of its services.

This is especially the case where finance/budget is referred to, where the evaluator's analyses are sometimes based on non-exhaustive data (commitments instead of payments) and where, for this reason, the European Commission does not fully endorse the findings of the report with the authors.
