Data for research

DG Regional Policy actively encourages research and the use of data on the ESIF and Structural Funds. Below we indicate some of the data available across different programming periods. Increasingly, this data is made available on the ESIF Open Data Platform in the data catalogue: . There you will find metadata pages and link to graphs giving insights into the dataset contents.

The DG REGIO evaluation unit welcomes feedback and will try to respond promptly to requests. Should you need data that is not in the catalogue, or should you require additional explanations (beyond what is in the metadata) please contact us.
