Cohesion policy, for decades now, has been one of the main instruments of the European Union for promoting economic growth and achieving a more homogeneous level of development across all EU territories, stimulating in particular less developed and depressed regions. The funds set aside for cohesion policy represent almost a third of the total EU budget (392 billion Euros for 2021-2027).
The territories supported by these funds are often vulnerable in a variety of ways, but that doesn’t mean they are not rich in opportunities. Quite the contrary. Thanks to the project Work4Future, we will have the opportunity, using a bottom-up approach, to explore and tell these territories and challenges they face in all countries of South Eastern Europe which are members of the EU, from the valleys of Slovenia to the islands of Greece, focusing particulary on the impact of cohesion policy on employment opportunities.
