Policy learning
To what extent the measure can be considered as a success and worthy of policy learning?:
It is too early to judge the success of the measure (e.g results of first call for proposals still not known).
Evidence of outcomes based on evaluation and other evidence:

So far, no evaluation available, but the measure can be regarded as a standard instrument.

What are the most important “Do’s and Don’ts” that regional stakeholders should be aware of when launching a similar measure?:

The regional expert would suggest observing the following issues with attention:

  • If a measure like this is implemented, a fair and competitive selection process needs to be put in place.
  • Administrative obligations should be reduced to a minimum.
