  • Política de Cohesión de la Unión Europea: invirtiendo en sus regiones y ciudades

    Política de Cohesión de la Unión Europea: invirtiendo en sus regiones y ciudades

    16/07/2014

    Cada año la UE invierte millones de euros para impulsar la creación de empleo y el crecimiento, con el fin de reducir las diferencias económicas y sociales entre sus regiones. Este vídeo explica de qué manera estas inversiones pueden mejorar la vida diaria de los ciudadanos estimulando el crecimiento económico de sus regiones. 

    Durante los últimos cinco años, la política de cohesión de la UE ha creado más de 600.000 empleos; ha invertido en la formación profesional de hasta 15 millones de personas cada año para mejorar su empleabilidad; ha cofinanciado la construcción de 25 000 km de carreteras y 1 800 km de líneas ferroviarias; ha garantizado el suministro de agua potable para otros 3 millones de personas; y ha invertido en 200 000 pequeñas y medianas empresas y en 61. 000 proyectos de investigación. Estas cifras no dejan de aumentar, ya que los proyectos que se han puesto en marcha en los últimos cinco años siguen generando resultados.

    Esto ha sido posible gracias al Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional, al Fondo de Cohesión y al Fondo Social Europeo que, en conjunto, representan más de un tercio del presupuesto de la UE.

    Art on Chairs: Crecimiento inteligente: innovación en las PYMEs

    31/03/2014

    La industria del mueble ha sido una de las principales actividades económicas en la ciudad de Paredes, en el norte de Portugal, con la mayor concentración de fábricas de sillas en Europa, y representa el 65 % de la producción nacional de muebles. Aunque esta industria era en su momento muy productiva, tiene ahora una imagen de industria anticuada y conservadora. Art on Chairs ha dado un nuevo aliento a esta industria tradicional asociándola al mundo del diseño para hacer de la fabricación de sillas un arte. Esta cooperación ha fomentado la creatividad de esta industria, ha mejorado su productividad y ha aumentado las exportaciones internacionales.
