The report syntheses the 27 national reports produced by the network of independent evaluation experts on the implementation of the programmes co-financed by the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) and Cohesion Fund over the 2007-2013 period. It assesses performance over the period on the basis of the latest information available, updating the report produced a year ago. It examines in turn:

  • the socio-economic context
  • changes in regional disparities across the EU during the crisis
  • the scale of support from the two funds in relation to development expenditure
  • the extent of changes in the focus of support over the period
  • the pace of implementing programmes
  • what the programmes have achieved so far
  • the evaluations undertaken of Cohesion policy interventions over the period
  •  the implications of the analysis for policy in the new period.
