Cohesion policy 2014-2020
Cohesion policy 2014-2020 represents approximately 1/3 of the EU budget, reinforcing its role as the Union's main investment policy for growth and jobs and implementing EU policies. The new EU investment proposal aims at achieving Europe's long-term goals for growth and jobs stated in “Europe 2020 - A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth”.
If compared to the 2007-2013 programming period the EU’s geographical areas targeted by the financial support are redefined. Three new categories of regions are introduced: less developed regions, transition regions, more developed regions. The classification of regions and Member States is based on the political agreement on the EU's Multiannual Financial Framework reached between the European Parliament and the Council at the end of June 2013.
The financial allocations reflect the state of play of negotiations on the EU's Multiannual Financial Framework as of July 2013. The figures may be subject to change in the final agreement between the Council and Parliament.
