Programme description

Main objectives

The OP support will substantially contribute to promoting the ability of the Lazio Region to achieve the key EU and national development priorities in the field of employment, social inclusion and education. The OP overall objective is to contribute to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth by intervening on employment, education and training in a reinforced social dimension.

Funding priorities

The OP has five priority axes:
1) Employment (linked to thematic objective – TO – 8)
2) Social inclusion and fight to poverty (TO 9)
3) Education and training (TO 10)
4) Institutional and administrative capacity (TO 11)
5) Technical assistance

The total budget of EUR 902,534,714 (50% of which ESF-funded) is divided accordingly between the axes:
• More than 45 % of the total OP allocations are envisaged for priority axis 1 in order to boost employability, fight against youth and female unemployment and improve public employment services.
• 20 % of the OP resources will be dedicated to promoting social inclusion, in particular for active inclusion and access to services.
• More than 26 % of the OP resources are allocated to reduce and prevent early school leaving, improve quality and access to tertiary education and improving the labour market relevance of education.
• Almost 4% of the OP is devoted to improving institutional capacity and strengthening the capacity building for all stakeholders.
• The 4% of the total resources of the OP is devoted to technical assistance.

As requested by the Regulation, at least 80% of the resources is concentrated in 5 investment priorities, notably

Expected impacts

The programme has a number of actions expected to strengthen the position of the unemployed and the inactive, – with special efforts on the young unemployed.
Public employment services will be improved, with 95% of them expected to be able to provide all specialised services foreseen by regional standards by the end of the programming period.

Active inclusion initiatives will ease access to work for the most disadvantaged including people with disabilities. Care services for 0-3 year old children will be improved, to cover about 25% of children.
