Background and further information:

Every three years, the European Union takes the pulse of its regions and analyses the current state of economic, social and territorial cohesion in the EU. The seventh report zooms in on EU regions and cities, draws lessons from cohesion spending during the crisis years and sets the scene for cohesion policy after 2020.

It shows that public investment in the EU is still below pre-crisis levels, while regions and Member States need to invest more to respond to the challenges identified in the reflection paper on the future of EU finances; the digital revolution, globalisation, demographic change and social cohesion, economic convergence and climate change.

The Report suggests an EU-wide policy serving three main purposes: harnessing globalisation, leaving no one behind and supporting structural reforms.
