Focus on results after 2013: Expert meeting on outcome indicators for cohesion policy
A task force of academic experts on a more result oriented cohesion policy post 2013 was created last year. It proposed a new approach to develop outcome/result indicators for the future programmes to better capture the effects of the interventions. Five regions in Austria, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden volunteered to test the approach to their current programmes and to start a process of reflection on identifying appropriate outcome/result indicators for the future programmes. The results and issues to consider were presented at a meeting organised by DG REGIO on September 29th. It will be followed up in the Evaluation Network Meeting planned for 20/21st October 2011.
