MDI participates in a Europe-wide study on ERDF and Cohesion Fund operations and on the monitoring systems commissioned by DG REGIO. The study is conducted by CSIL (Center for Industrial Studies), Prognos and PPMI. MDI participates in the study as a country expert for Finland, Sweden and Denmark. The aim of the study is to provide the Commission with reliable and comparable monitoring data for the ex-post evaluation of the 2014-2020 Cohesion Funds programming period. The study will create a coherent database of funded actions and beneficiaries, as well as result and output indicators.
