On 30 June 2021 DG REGIO launched a Study on the progress in regional policy of the candidate countries and potential candidates for the EU membership (IPA II beneficiaries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia (Western Balkans Six-WB6) and Turkey).
This survey aims to collect information on institutional capacity for the EU Cohesion Policy, targeting the management and control system bodies, as well as the other stakeholders from various levels of government and non-governmental actors, that participate in all stages of programme cycle management. It will also collect data on relevant strategic framework and programming for EU Cohesion Policy, including information on regional development polices, territorial organization and institutional set up, as well as how relevant partners are involved in policy and IPA planning, monitoring etc.
By participating in this survey, you will contribute to the future designing of EU programmes more suitable for the needs of the candidate countries and potential candidates for the EU membership.
We invite you to fill in the survey that is available in English language as well as in the official languages of the WB6 and Turkey.
Please note that the deadline for filling in the survey is 9 July 2021.
