2000-2006 programmes financed by the ERDF
The regional development programmes (operational programmes or single programming
documents) are presented to the European Commission by the Member States
in order to benefit from Structural Funds co-financing within the framework
of the priority regional Objectives. By common accord, the Member State
authorities and the Commission establish the priorities for action and the
level of financial assistance to be provided by the European Union.
In some cases, the adoption of the programmes is preceded by the adoption
of a Community support framework which lays down the general strategy
for ERDF assistance in a certain number of regions within a Member State.

to consult the web
sites of the national or regional authorities responsible for
their implementation. You will also find contact details for these
authorities at the end of the programme summaries.
