  • La politica di coesione dell’Unione europea: investire nelle regioni e nelle città

    La politica di coesione dell’Unione europea: investire nelle regioni e nelle città

    16/07/2014

    Ogni anno l'UE investe milioni di euro per promuovere l'occupazione e la crescita economica e contribuire a ridurre le disparità sociali ed economiche tra le sue regioni. Questo breve video spiega come gli investimenti dell'UE possono migliorare la vita di tutti i giorni dei cittadini stimolando la crescita economica nella loro regione. 

    Negli ultimi cinque anni tale politica ha creato oltre 600.000 posti di lavoro, ha investito nella formazione di quasi 15 milioni di persone ogni anno per migliorarne l’accesso all'occupazione e ha cofinanziato la costruzione di 25.000 chilometri di strade e 1.800 chilometri di ferrovie; ha inoltre assicurato l’approvvigionamento di acqua potabile per 3 milioni di persone in più e ha investito in 200.000 piccole e medie imprese e 61.000 progetti di ricerca. Queste cifre sono in continua crescita in quanto i progetti avviati negli ultimi cinque anni continuano a produrre risultati. 

    Tutto questo è possibile grazie al Fondo europeo di sviluppo regionale, al Fondo di coesione e al Fondo sociale europeo, che, insieme, rappresentano oltre un terzo del bilancio dell’Unione europea.

    REGIOSTARS 2014 - Art on Chairs: Portugal’s innovative chair-makers gain a global reputation

    31/03/2014

    The furniture industry has for years been one of the most important economic activities in the city of Paredes, which has the highest concentration of chair factories in Europe and accounting for 65% of national furniture production. But although the industry was once highly productive, its image is now seen as old-fashioned and conservative. Art on Chairs has breathed new life into this traditional furniture industry by bringing them together with the designer world to transform chair making into an art. This fruitful cooperation between designers and the local SMEs has led to the production of top quality designer chairs, renewed pride in the work, boost of creativity in the manufacturing industry, enhanced productivity and an increase in international exports.
