The project contributes to the ongoing evaluation of the Lombardia Competitiveness OP (2007-13). The EPRC contribution involves three studies on: (i) the reform of Cohesion policy for the 2014-2020 period and the application of the earmarking principle in selected 2007-13 programmes from across the EU; (ii) an assessment of financial instruments for business development in Cohesion policy; and (iii) a review and appraisal of the measures implemented in 2007-13 programmes to support innovation, particularly through the enhancement of collaboration between firms and research.
