EUROCITIES invites you to a webinar on the European Commission’s proposals for cohesion policy for the 2021-2027 period. The webinar will take place on Friday 22 June, 10:00 to 11:30.


On 2 May 2018, the European Commission officially published its proposal for the next 7-year EU budget (Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027). This was followed on 29 and 30 May by the proposals for cohesion policy, namely the commmon provisions regulation, the fund regulations for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Cohesion Fund, the specific provisions for European Territorial Cooperation (ETC or Interreg) and the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+).


For a general overview of the MFF proposal, download our Policy brief on the MFF proposal 2021-2027. For background, you can also find our policy paper on the future cohesion policy from 2017.


The webinar will run as follows:

• 10.00-10.10 Welcome and introduction;

• 10.10-10.45 Presentation of the cohesion policy framework 2021-2027 (focus on ERDF, Cohesion Fund and ESF) by EUROCITIES;

• 10.45-11.30 Q&A session.
