30 years of EU cohesion policy

In 2018, EU cohesion policy will celebrate its 30th anniversary. Cohesion policy has been accompanying the evolutions of the European Union: From the creation of the single market to the need to foster convergence to underpin the EMU, successive enlargements and most recently, the need to respond to the migration crisis. Also in the future, cohesion policy shall stay at the very core of the Union's development. It will enable the EU to harness globalisation, and to foster prosperous economies, caring societies and sustainable growth through innovation and skills.

2018 is the year to take stock and to look at what lies ahead. Throughout the year, the European Commission will organise events and exhibitions around 30 years cohesion policy.

We invite you to become part of this initiative by organising local or regional events – and to use our unique visual branding.

Cohesion policy after 30 years: watch the debate

EU’s main investment policy celebrates its 30th anniversary. What has cohesion policy achieved over this period? And how ready is it to answer current and future challenges?

On 21 March, at 17:00 CET, top politicians and EU officials answered these questions. They looked at how cohesion policy has been at the heart of each milestone in the history of the Union, from the creation of the single market, to the need to foster convergence, through successive enlargements and the need to respond to the migration crisis. And they explored how tomorrow’s cohesion policy will help the EU harness globalisation, foster prosperous economies, caring societies and sustainable growth, through innovation and skills.

Watch the Euronews debate with European Commissioner Corina Creţu, Prime Minister of Portugal Antonio Costa, President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani, President of Committee of the Regions Karl-Heinz Lambertz, and Former Commissioners Danuta Huebner and Michel Barnier.
