Europe 2020 strategy review and cohesion policy

20-10-2015

Accounting for about one third of the EU budget, cohesion policy is an important investment tool contributing to the achievement of the Europe 2020 goals. For the 2014-2020 period, cohesion policy is closely aligned with the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy through the 'thematic concentration' of its expenditure. The European Commission is set to present a review of the Europe 2020 strategy by the end of 2015, with possible implications for cohesion policy.
