More than 1,5 million EU-funded projects accessible in new public platform available in all EU languages

The European Commission (EC) has launched „Kohesio”, a public online platform gathering all the information on over 1,5 million projects in all 27 Member States financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Cohesion Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) since 2014, according to a communiqué by the Community Executive. „It is the first time that such a comprehensive platform of project data, that will be available in all EU languages, is created and made available to all. Setting it up required a close cooperation with managing authorities in the different Member States or regions, as cohesion projects are managed by national and regional authorities”, it is mentioned in the communiqué.

The Kohesio platform makes the information held by managing authorities available to all. With an impressive wealth of data, it shows the crucial contribution of cohesion policy to the economic, territorial and social cohesion of the EU’s regions, as well as to the green and digital transitions, through the implementation and funding of a wide variety of policy priorities in the Member States. It also encourages the identification and exchanges of best practices between different regions and Member States.

Here is what Kohesio can offer:

  • standardised data on 1.5 million projects from the 2014-2020 funding period, including links to the respective programmes and funds;
  • standardised data on the 500,000 project beneficiaries and the state of implementation of the projects;
  • Data covering more than 300 operational programmes in all 27 Member States;
  • An interactive map allowing to retrieve the data geographically;
  • All information to be translated in all EU languages.
