The expert group assesses the costs and benefits of establishing a 'EU platform for external cooperation and development'. Based on the findings of the group of experts, the Commission will report to the European Parliament and the Council by mid-2012 and, if appropriate, make a proposal for the platform. Such a platform would then focus on mechanisms for the blending of (Commission) grants with loans from other institutions. It would promote coherence and mutual reliance arrangements between institutions, as well as effectiveness, efficiency and visibility regarding the use of such blending mechanisms.
