From 2000 to 2006, EU cohesion policy provided support for 27 Member States, investing over €120 billion in 230 programmes. Launched in 1986, its effectiveness and support for Europe have been proven time and again, particularly in terms of economic growth, jobs and the environment. On top of this success, several improvements and innovations have been introduced to cohesion policy, starting in 2007, opening up the prospect of going further still by 2013.
