European Week of Regions and Cities
8-11 October 2018 Brussels

The new ESF+: What's in it for cities and regions?

October 10, 2018 from 14:30 to 16:00

The ESF budget has increased in the current programming period to EUR 86.4 billion, but has it proved to be sufficiently flexible in responding to the challenges faced during the different crises the EU has had to tackle since 2008? This workshop will discuss the following issues at stake: should the ESF's scope be expanded? Should the ESF remain an integral part of the EU's Cohesion Policy? How can multi-level governance in the ESF's management be ensured? To what extent will the ESF be used in the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights?
