The project looks at lessons learned from the current MFF (2014–20). It assesses the impacts that the new legislative proposals would have on Member States and on future national and regional spending programmes. It also makes recommendations on said legislative proposals and on the investment priorities of the national and regional EU funds, and promotes stakeholder involvement in the programming and planning of future EU funds.
During the course of the project, workshops will be delivered in Berlin and Warsaw and a conference held in Brussels. To enable MEPs to follow up on and ensure the sustainability of EU funding, the project implementing partners will roll out targeted outreach (e.g. around the European Parliament elections).
To maximise the project’s impact at the national and EU levels, its results will be widely communicated to different stakeholders (e.g. the European Commission, the European Parliament, national governments, business groups, trade unions, civil society and the media).
