  • Het Cohesiebeleid van de Europese Unie: investeren in uw regio’s en steden

    Het Cohesiebeleid van de Europese Unie: investeren in uw regio’s en steden

    16/07/2014

    Elk jaar investeert de EU miljoenen in nieuwe banen en economische groei om de sociale en economische verschillen tussen de regio's te verminderen. In deze korte video ziet u wat het voor het dagelijks leven van iemand kan beteken als de EU de economische groei in zijn streek stimuleert.

    Dankzij deze politiek werden er in de voorbije vijf jaar meer dan 600 000 banen gecreëerd en werd er jaarlijks geïnvesteerd in opleiding voor meer dan 15 miljoen mensen. De aanleg van meer dan 25 000 km autosnelwegen en 1800 km spoorwegen werd medegefinancierd. Drie miljoen extra mensen kregen toegang tot zuiver drinkwater en minstens 200 000 kleine en middelgrote ondernemingen kregen steun bij de opstart. Tevens werd geïnvesteerd in 61 000 wetenschappelijke onderzoeksprojecten.Deze cijfers nemen nog toe, aangezien de projecten, die gedurende de afgelopen vijf jaar opgestart zijn, nog steeds resultaat opleveren. 

    Dit alles wordt mogelijk gemaakt door het Europees Fonds voor Regionale Ontwikkeling, het Cohesiefonds en het Europees Sociaal Fonds, die samen meer dan één derde van de EU‑begroting vertegenwoordigen.

    University of the Greater Region: Christian Wagner (story)

    01/10/2011In this video profile, professor of experimental physics Christian Wagner explains how the UGR project impacts on his life and on the lives of some of his students. As a professor, he sees students who have spent their first two years studying in Nancy or in Luxembourg before spending their third year at the University of Saarland, where he works. The UGR project, supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), is important for them and for him, because it offers harmonised evaluations and simplifies administrative formalities. Since the project began, he has noticed many improvements and his daily work has become much easier.

    01/10/2011In this video portrait, Pascale Renders, a young Belgian PhD student at the University of Liège and University of Nancy, tells us how her work could have been much more straightforward if the University of the Greater Region (UGR) project had been in place when she began both the administrative process to enrol at the University of Nancy and her search for funding for her doctorate. The difficulties faced by Pascale, as well as the issue of moving between universities, are now however a thing of the past as a result of the UGR project, which has received backing from the EU via the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

    Cross-border cooperation: University of the Greater Region

    01/10/2011The University of the Greater Region (UGR) project brings together seven universities in four different countries. Through the UGR project, students, researchers and professors from these university institutions are able to explore new work and study prospects as well as new research networks, while gaining firsthand experiences of other languages and diverse cultures, thus laying the foundations for a truly European university. The administrative, legal and financial issues raised by the UGR project could lead to the development of solutions that may one day be used by all European universities, thus removing knowledge barriers and at the same time promoting cultural diversity, something highly valued by European citizens.
