MDI was part of the evaluation consortium that evaluated programmes and their indicator data in relation to the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund. The evaluation data formulated a base for the evaluation of the cohesion policy 2007-2013. MDI took a look at the five Finnish ERDF programmes (Southern, Western, Eastern and Northern Finland + Åland Island) and Central Baltic programme, governed by Finland. MDI was a subcontractor in the programme led by t33, Spatial Foresight and ÖIR. The work was finalised in 2015.
