    Il-Politika ta' Koeżjoni tal-Unjoni Ewropea: ninvestu fir-Reġjuni u l-Bliet tiegħek

    16/07/2014

    Kull sena, l-UE tinvesti miljuni ta' Euro fil-ħolqien tal-impjiegi u t-tkabbir ekonomiku biex tgħin tnaqqas id-differenzi soċjali u ekonomiċi bejn ir-reġjuni tagħha. Dan il-filmat qasir jurik aktar dwar kif dawn l-investimenti tal-UE jistgħu jtejbu ħajjet iċ-ċittadini billi jistimolaw it-tkabbir ekonomiku fir-reġjun tagħhom.

    Tul dawn l-aħħar ħames snin, il-Politika ta' Koeżjoni tal-UE ħolqot aktar minn 600 000 impjieg. Kull sena investiet fit-taħriġ professjonali ta' 15-il miljun ruħ sabiex ittejjeb l-impjegabbiltà tagħhom; ikkofinanzjat il-bini ta' 25 000 km ta' toroq u 1 800 km ta' linji ferrovjarji; żgurat ukoll il-provvista ta' ilma tax-xorb nadif għal tliet miljun ruħ oħra; investiet f'200 000 kumpanija ta’ daqs żgħir u medju u f'61 000 proġett ta' riċerka. Dawn iċ-ċifri għadhom qed jiżdiedu, billi l-proġetti li nbdew matul dawn l-aħħar ħames snin għadhom qed jagħtu r-riżultati. 

    Dan kollu huwa possibbli bis-saħħa tal-Fond Ewropew għall-Iżvilupp Reġjonali, il-Fond ta' Koeżjoni u l-Fond Soċjali Ewropew, li flimkien jirrappreżentaw aktar minn terz tal-baġit tal-UE.

    REGIOSTARS 2014 - BEACON: Creating green jobs in rural Wales

    31/03/2014

    The BEACON project faces a major challenge for Europe and the world: developing innovative technologies to meet the growing demand for energy and resources. The project focuses on bio-refining: a process using non-food crops to create biomass which can be used in products instead of crude oil. By producing renewable products from biomass, BEACON represents a green alternative to polluting fossil fuels, helping Europe to cut its greenhouse gas emissions. BEACON also supports companies in commercialising their research and exploiting intellectual property. This pioneering initiative is attracting investments to one of the UK poorest rural regions, creating vital jobs and developing advanced know-how at a global level.

    A passion for cooking is transforming young lives in one of the poorest parts of England.

    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.

    • Region: Região Norte, Portugal
    • Total budget: €1 096 000
    • ERDF funding: €931 000

    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.
