  • 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.

    El proyecto BEACON afronta un reto fundamental en Europa: el desarrollo de nuevas tecnologías para responder a la demanda creciente de energía y recursos. El proyecto se centra en el refinado ecológico: un proceso que utiliza cultivos no alimentarios para crear biomasa destinada a sustituir el petróleo en determinados productos. Con la producción de productos renovables a partir de biomasa, BEACON constituye una alternativa ecológica a los combustibles fósiles contaminantes y contribuye a reducir las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero en Europa. Esta iniciativa pionera está atrayendo inversiones a una de las regiones más pobres del Reino Unido, crea puestos de trabajo vitales y desarrolla conocimientos técnicos avanzados.

    RegioStars 2012 - INCLUSIVE GROWTH:  O4O - Lifelong experience boosts ageing communities

    13/06/2012People in the EU are living longer than ever, and the proportion of the population aged over 55 is growing all the time. In some rural areas on the fringes of northern Europe, many pensioners live by themselves, and risk becoming isolated and marginalised if public transport and other services are not available and they cannot afford special care. In these remote regions, skilled staff, such as carers and nurses, are often hard to recruit and retain. The O4O project – Older people for Older people – co-financed by the European Union, responded to this challenge, using existing skills and experience within ageing communities. O4O shows older people how they can take responsibility for providing the services they need, and organises support across rural Scotland, Finland, Greenland, Northern Ireland and Sweden. At a time when public spending is under pressure in many parts of the EU, the project demonstrates how vital networks and facilities can be maintained in a way that also encourages older people to stay active and make an important contribution to society. Winner of the RegioStars 2012 Award, Inclusive Growth category

    Cross-border cooperation: Integration of Roma into the labour market

    01/10/2011This video shows one of the many facets of the ROMA project, which has received support from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The ROMA project aims at the gradual integration of the large Roma community, traditionally discriminated against, living in the Romania-Hungary border region, by offering them the opportunity to find work. Dio Zoltan, one of the project’s key members, conducted a study to establish the professional profile of unemployed Roma. The profiles of those qualified for a job were then sent to employment agencies. Sharing experiences and good practices has produced positive results for Roma employment in the two countries. One of the programme’s beneficiaries, Daroczi Zoltanne, managed to find a job at the social centre in her village as a result of this process, in doing so ensuring a better life for her and her children.
