Expert Evaluation Network Delivering Policy Analysis on the Performance of Cohesion Policy 2007-13
The objective of this network of experts is to synthesize evidence on the performance of Cohesion Policy in the period 2007-2013 by examining the physical and financial performance of the operational programmes, evaluations and other evidences available. Every year the expert network produces country reports on the achievements of cohesion policy and on a selected theme.
All reports look at the physical and financial performance of the operational programmes and analyse evidence coming from evaluations undertaken in the Member States. Hungary is represented in the project by Mr Gábor Balás, who is managing director of HÉTFA and an expert in Cohesion Policy evaluations and impact analysis. For 2011 the network of experts produced for every Member State a report on the achievements of cohesion policy and a policy paper on renewable energy and energy efficiency in residential housing. The network also identified examples of good practice in evaluation (interesting methods, good data, etc.). The main findings from all country reports are summarized in the synthesis reports which contain comparative analysis and trends across the EU.
