This study provides an evidence-based review of EU countries' strategic choices in the programming of the European Social Fund. This EU-level report was prepared on the basis of 28 country factsheets. The summary analysis aggregates the variables collected in the country factsheets in order to provide EU level figures. This cross-country analysis also allows to compare the solutions adopted by Member States and clusters of Member States and region, and to identify the main trends across the EU.
Esta brochura descreve o modo como o Fundo Social Europeu (FSE) apoia pessoas que, de outro modo, poderiam não ter a oportunidade de frequentar formação, obter qualificações e encontrar bons empregos. Graças à sua dimensão e alcance, o Fundo tem uma grande influência no mercado de trabalho e na sociedade em geral. Em alguns países, cerca de 90% das despesas reais em medidas do mercado de trabalho provêm do FSE. O Fundo é o principal instrumento utilizado pela UE para cumprir as suas metas em matéria de aumento das taxas de emprego, redução da pobreza e melhoria do aproveitamento escolar em toda a União.
A publicação explica como funciona o FSE e apresenta os resultados obtidos até agora graças ao período de financiamento de 2007-2013, bem como exemplos reais de como ajudou alguns dos milhões de pessoas que apoia todos os anos.
Simplified Cost Options (SCOs) change how we reimburse expenditure under ESF projects. Rather than paying on the basis of real costs backed up with invoices and receipts, we pay on the basis of pre-defined standard scales of unit costs, flat rate or lump sum payments. SCOs are proven to reduce the error rate for the programme and also to reduce the administrative burden for Member States and beneficiaries. They can also help put a greater focus on the outputs and results achieved.
This report reviews the current and planned take-up of SCOs. It summarises outcomes for the 2007-2013 period and the regulatory improvements on SCOs for the 2014-2020 period. It presents an overview of the planned implementation of SCOs during the current programming period, and the benefits that national authorities derive from them. Finally, it looks at what else needs to be done to increase the use of SCOs. The results represent the most comprehensive estimate available of the use of the SCOs in the ESF.
This paper summarises 29 operational programmes financed by the European Social Fund and/or the European Regional Development Fund under the objective “enhancing institutional capacity of public authorities and stakeholders and efficient public administration” (thematic objective 11). It was prepared with the view of informing the evolution of the ‘Quality of Public Administration Toolbox for Practitioners’, a practical guide for civil and judicial administrations to the challenges of good governance.
The Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) launched in 2013 provides funding of €6.4 billion to support youth employment by targeting young people aged below 25 years (or below 29 in some Member States) who are not in employment, education or training and who reside in the regions of the European Union particularly affected by unemployment. This study provides an overview of the implementation progress of the YEI from September 2013 to the end of November 2015 across the 20 eligible Member States. It also includes an in-depth analysis for a sample of countries and key points from the national evaluations.An executive summary is also available in English and in French.
