  • A política de Coesão da União Europeia: investir nas suas Regiões e Cidades

    A política de Coesão da União Europeia: investir nas suas Regiões e Cidades

    16/07/2014

    Todos os anos, a UE investe milhões de euros na criação de emprego e no crescimento económico, a fim de ajudar a reduzir as diferenças sociais e económicas entre as regiões europeias. Este vídeo de curta duração dá informações sobre a forma como os investimentos da UE podem melhorar a quotidiano dos cidadãos ao estimular o crescimento económico na região onde vivem. 

    Nos últimos cinco anos, a política de coesão da UE criou mais de 600 000 postos de trabalho; investiu na formação profissional de 15 milhões de pessoas por ano, para melhorar a sua empregabilidade; e cofinanciou a construção de 25 000 km de estradas e 1800 km de caminho-de-ferro; garantiu ainda o abastecimento de água potável a mais 3 milhões de pessoas; investiu em 200 000 pequenas e médias empresas e 61 000 projetos de investigação. Estes números continuam a crescer dado que os projetos que tiveram início nos últimos 5 anos continuam a produzir resultados. 

    Tudo isto tem sido possível graças ao Fundo Europeu de Desenvolvimento Regional, ao Fundo de Coesão e ao Fundo Social Europeu que, em conjunto, representam mais de um terço do orçamento da UE.

    Regiões do Oeste e dos Vales do País de Gales – Reino Unido

    O projeto «BEACON» enfrenta um desafio importante para a Europa: desenvolver novas tecnologias por forma a dar resposta à crescente procura de energia e de recursos. O projeto centra-se na biorrefinação: um processo que utiliza culturas não-alimentares para criar biomassa para utilizar em produtos, em substituição do petróleo bruto. Ao produzir produtos renováveis a partir de biomassa, o projeto «Beacon» representa uma alternativa verde aos combustíveis fósseis poluentes, ajudando a Europa a reduzir as suas emissões de gases com efeito de estufa. Esta iniciativa pioneira está a atrair investimentos para uma das regiões mais pobres do RU, criando postos de trabalho extremamente necessários e desenvolvendo competências mais avançadas.

    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.

    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.
