Economic Crisis and the Structural Funds

The current round of Structural Fund programmes began on the 1st January 2007 and come to a close on the 31st December 2013. Thus, whilst they were prepared in the dying days of the economic boom, their implementation has coincided with the economic crisis that is generally considered to have been precipitated by the credit crunch of 2008.

In light of this juxtaposition, the ECR2 - Economic Crisis: Resilience of Regions - project was asked to examine how Structural Fund programmes have been affected by the economic crisis and, in turn, how the programmes have responded to this and to the effects of the crisis itself.
