The European Commission (the Commission) has launched today a public consultation on EU funds in the area of cohesion, with the goal to collect the views of all interested parties on how to make the most of every euro of the EU budget. The opinions provided within the public consultation will be used this year within the process of development of comprehensive proposals for the next generation of financial programmes for the post-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (the EU's long–term budget).
The consultation in a form of an online questionnaire, available in 23 EU languages, is open until 8 March 2018 to all citizens and stakeholders interested in Cohesion policy, including beneficiaries of EU programmes and funds such as national, regional and local authorities, inter-governmental and non-governmental bodies, academic institutions, civil society and enterprises.
The Commission will publish the replies shortly after the end of the consultation period.
Detailed information, along with the link to the online questionnaire, is available on the website of the European Commission.
