Digital Agenda and Cohesion Policy

July 2018, 

CSIL experts authored a research for the European Parliament providing a critical analysis of the contribution of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) to the Digital Agenda for Europe and the Digital Single Market (DAE/DSM).

The study, titled Digital Agenda and Cohesion Policy, comprises two volumes. The first one analyses past and current patterns of ESIF digital investments, and shows that Cohesion Policy should concentrate where its added value is highest, i.e., on support to the formulation of effective regional digital strategies and on the promotion of partnerships between relevant stakeholders, at regional level and beyond. Volume II presents six full case studies reports of initiatives supported by ESIF in different areas and regions.
