In 2011, the European Commission commissioned a study on the “Analysis of needs for financial instruments in the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR)”.
The main objectives of this study:
- Identifying the needs and expectations of main stakeholders including Priority Area Coordinators (PACs), project leaders and promoters of ideas as well as Member States (Managing Authorities).
- Identifying and describing the existing financial and ‘non-financial’ instruments.
- Identifying the gaps and explaining how to fill them.
The final report, prepared by Metis, is now publicly available for download.
