The 2009 Progress Annual Performance Report presents the results of the performance of the European Union programme for employment and social solidarity — Progress (2007–13) against the commitments made in the programme's strategic framework and detailed in the annual work plan 2009. It demonstrates how Progress-funded activities have actually contributed to the achievements of EU policy goals and illustrates their concrete benefits for Europeans. The report highlights some of the most successful actions that have led to significant and lasting effects for the Member States, for example, in terms of policy transfer and mutual learning. It also gives recommendations on actions to enhance the programme's efficiency and effectiveness. In addition to the full report, a factsheet has been published in English, French and German summarising the key findings of the report. This brochure is available in electronic format in English, French and German.
