  • 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.

    RegioStars 2010: High Speed Broadband

    01/05/2010This video showcases the RegioStars 2010 winner in the “Broadband coverage in less developed regions or rural areas” category. Broadband coverage is a central element when it comes to guaranteeing competitiveness in the world today. In more sparsely populated regions, private telecommunications operators are often reticent about shouldering the risk of investing in what are commonly referred to as “white zones”. Faced with this challenge, the Auvergne region established a public/private partnership (PPP) in 2005 to extend broadband coverage to all homes. The project was finalised in early 2009.
