Ex-ante Evaluation and Strategic Assessment of EU Programmes Cohesion Policy

At the beginning of the ongoing programming period we conducted ex-ante evaluations for a number of Operational Programmes.

The ex-ante evaluation reviews whether the strategies correspond with European cohesion policy objectives und the needs of the region, whether the indicators are plausible and whether the finance plan and administrative measures are adequate. Additionally, all ERDF co-financed programmes incorporate a Strategic Environmental Assessment. We have examined the ERDF programmes from North Rhine-Westphalia, Thuringia and Saxony, the ESF programme from Saxony, the Adriatic-Ionian programme for Territorial Cooperation and the Alpine Space programme.

Partners: IAT, DE (NRW); Spatial Foresight, LU (Thuringia)
