Nota 2/2017 "I Fondi Strutturali e di Investimento Europeo in Italia: la priorità agenda urbana”

This short Note is about the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIFs) and their role in financing the so called urban agenda.

The main topics addressed by this Note are
(i) links between ‘Europe 2020’, ‘cohesion policy’ and the ESIFs,
(ii) mission and scope of both European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the European Social Fund (ESF) in Italy,
(iii) urban agenda and main EU actions/funds directed at improving its implementation,
(iv) mission of the European territorial progammes under the ERDF.
