European Structural and Investment Funds

EU Cohesion Policy and its instruments are fundamental to reducing economic, social and territorial disparities between regions in the EU. Five main Funds work together to support economic development across the EU countries, in line with the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy. These are:

Altogether these 5 Funds make up European Structural and Investment Funds, so called ESI Funds.

Lexxion Publisher has been organising events of different formats in the field of ESI Funds since 2012, with the aim to exchange knowledge on the efficient management, implementation and control of ESI Funds. Through the years of professional and very successful cooperation with our experts and participants, we have built up a huge and stable network of expertise and experience. Moreover in 2013, we launched the European Structural and Investment Funds Journal (EStIF), which responds to the growing need for information exchange between the various stakeholders involved in the management and implementation of ESI Funds.
