Once the 2014-2020 programming of the ERDF and the ESF is approaching its final stage, this briefing aims at presenting some first results of it. Based on data from the 300+ national and regional ERDF and ESF programmes, the following questions will be discussed:
• What's the state of programming in the different member states?
• How will the eleven thematic priorities of the European Structural and Investment Funds be addressed?
• What can be said about the use of new instruments such as the ITI, CLLD, financial instruments and the implementation of the European Code of Conduct?
• How was the "partnership principle" put in practice?
• What have been the main issues in the discussions of the Operational Programmes?
• What are assumed future challenges of implementation and how will both the ERDF and the ESF address these?
