Qualitätsrahmen der EU für die Antizipation von Veränderungen und Umstrukturierungen

Opinion Number: CDR 1319/2014
Rapporteur: BRANDA Pavel
Commission: ECOS-V
Status: Adopted
Date: 03/12/2014

 points out that the effects of restructuring are clearly felt at regional level. They can influence a region's structural development and its competitiveness in the medium or even long term. In view of this, regional approaches are needed (decentralised policies taking local needs into account and implemented with the involvement of key partners);

 is therefore pleased that the Quality Framework acknowledges the shared responsibility of all stakeholders, including regional authorities. The Committee argues that this is also an issue of concern for local authorities, large cities in particular, which have the main concentrations of employers and play a key role in determining the economic situation of smaller urban centres in their catchment areas;

 stresses the role of LRAs in the use of EU Structural Funds such as the ESF and the ERDF, as well as the European Globalisation Adjustment Fund in relevant regions, to promote job creation and inclusive transitions. Funding for measures relating to the anticipation of change and restructuring should come from several different sources, in order to ensure continuity;

 feels that the most important role for LRAs in restructuring is coordinating all the stakeholders. In practice, permanent coordination structures have proven crucial in ensuring rapid and effective responses at regional level.
