How to Integrate the EU Flagship Initiatives into Cohesion Policy

The project involved an assessment of the Europe 2020 strategy with particular reference to its seven Flagship initiatives (Innovation Union, Digital Agenda, Industrial Policy, Resource-efficient Europe, Youth on the Move, New Skills and Jobs, and the European Platform against Poverty). It explores their coherence with Cohesion policy with a view to the preparations for the 2014-20 period and identifies ways of integrating the Flagship initiatives into the future Common Strategic Framework. Detailed roadmaps were provided for each Flagship initiative, indicating what, when, how and by whom actions should be carried out over short-, medium- and long-term perspectives. Lastly, the report delivered recommendations related to the implementation of the Flagship initiatives using Cohesion policy instruments.
