Analysis of the on-line Public Consultation launched after the publication of the Conclusions of the 5th Cohesion Report

Every three years, the EU publishes a report on economic, social and territorial cohesion, detailing progress in these areas and how the EU, national and regional governments have contributed. The 5th Cohesion Report covered the following issues:

  • Analysis of regional disparities
  • Contribution of the EU, national and regional governments to the impact of Cohesion Policy
  • Cohesion Policy post 2013

Ecorys has analysed responses to the public consultation launched to help shaping future EU policy and prepare legislative proposals. In total, 444 contributions from a variety of stakeholders (Member-States, Regional Authorities, citizens, etc.) were analysed. Our work enabled the Commission to highlight key messages for the next Cohesion Policy.
