European Network on Social Inclusion and Roma under the Structural Funds
Structural Funds: Investing in Roma
These handbooks, which provide an in-depth and technical analysis of two topics identified as among the most challenging ones, aim to serve as practical resources for Managing Authorities, Intermediate Bodies and other relevant stakeholders involved in the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of ESI Funds. Together with the “Joint report on the use of Structural Funds for Roma inclusion” released in 2014, the handbooks are the key tools of the Network to achieve its goal of transferring the knowledge gained on the use of Structural Funds for Roma inclusion during the 2007-2013 programming period to the 2014-2020 period.
The Network Technical Secretariat shared the knowledge gained in the context of the Network on the use of ESIF for Roma inclusion during the 2007-2013 programming period as well as proposals to achieve a more effective use of the funds in the 2014-2020 period.
The Commission seeks expressions of interest to participate in piloting Integrity Pacts in projects co-financed by the Structural and Cohesion Funds.
The publication "Making use of European Structural and Investment Funds for Roma inclusion. A Guide for local authorities” is now available in English, Croatian, Bulgarian and Spanish. Czech version will be released soon.
