A common programming tool for all structural funds
Following the preparation of the next 2014-2020 strategic paper, the Commission has presented its Common Strategic Framework which aims to maximize the use of EU funds in Member States. This framework will serve as a benchmark for national and regional authorities to develop "partnership contracts" with the Commission.
New directions will focus on innovation, ICT, SMEs, environmental protection and sustainable development, education and transport. The CSF will be adopted as a final document when the legislative package will be approved by the European Parliament and the Council.
Meanwhile, all the structural funds for 2007-2013 have not been consumed yet: it remains a large number of funding opportunities for your projects through the ERDF and ESF.
