The project involved research on the evolutionary experience of monitoring in the EU Member States to highlight useful lessons and examples for Phare cross-border cooperation (CBC) programmes in Poland. An overview presentation of monitoring and indicator definition in mainstream Structural Fund programmes was provided initially, before a more specific assesment was undertaken of monitoring in cross-border programmes. This was illustrated from current Interreg programmes and particularly those on the external EU border. The operationalisation of monitoring indicators and concluding challenges for the Polish CBC programmes was also assessed.
