  • 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.

    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.

    University of the Greater Region: Pascale Renders (portrait)

    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.
