Study on Public Private Partnerships and Cohesion Policy

December 2017, 

CSIL experts authored a study for the European Parliament describing how Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) have been used in the context of Cohesion Policy by looking at the reasons for pursuing such an approach, the variety of implementation agreements and the expected outcomes.

The study has been presented by Laura Delponte during the meeting of the Committee on Regional Development that took place on 7 December 2017. The study finds that the use of PPPs in Cohesion Policy has been limited and concentrated in a number of Member States and sectors, in spite of favourable regulatory changes. Evidence shows that PPPs are useful instruments to implement projects on time and on budget, but the assessment of outcomes over the long-term period is still limited and not conclusive.
