For the 2007–13 period, Slovakia has been allocated €11.7 billion in total: €10.9 billion under the Convergence1 Objective, €0.5 billion under the Regional Competitiveness and Employment Objective, and €0.2 billion under the European Territorial Cooperation Objective. The regions of Western Slovakia, Central Slovakia and Eastern Slovakia fall under the Convergence Objective, while the Bratislava region is the only region to fall under the Regional Competitiveness and Employment Objective.
Slovakia’s strategic planning for the 2007–13 period is being implemented through 11 programmes. In the Western Slovakia, Central Slovakia and Eastern Slovakia regions, six sectoral programmes (including ‘Information Society’; ‘Environment’; ‘Transport’; ‘Health’; ‘Competitiveness & Economic Growth’; ‘Research & Development’) and one regional programme are being implemented. A specific regional programme is being implemented in the Bratislava region. Additionally, one ‘multi-objective’ programme is covering the whole of the Slovakian territory. Two programmes are co-financed with
the European Social Fund (‘Education’ and ‘Employment & Social Inclusion’).
