About EStIF – European Structural and Investment Funds Journal
Launched in 2013, the European Structural and Investment Funds Journal (EStIF) responds to the growing need for information exchange between the various stakeholders involved in the implementation of ESI Funds. The journal deals with all aspects of the management, implementation and control of the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, the Cohesion Fund, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.
Aims & Scope
EStIF offers a platform for hands-on expertise in structural policy and encourages knowledge exchange between European institutions and national and regional authorities in the field of ESI Funds.
Topics covered by the journal include:
- efficient management and control of ESI Funds – the current programming period, lessons learnt from 2007–2013, and challenges ahead in the programming period post 2020;
- regulation & policies;
- management, implementation & control of ESI Funds;
- best practices and experiences of Member States & beneficiaries.
EStIF’s Target Audience
EStIF addresses public authorities involved in the management of ERDF, ESF, CF, EARDF and EFMF programmes, such as Managing Authorities, Certifying Authorities, Audit Authorities, and Intermediate Bodies, as well as other authorities involved in the management and implementation of EU funded projects, such as EU Funds and European Affairs Departments in national and regional ministries, agencies and governments, cities and local authorities implementing EU funded projects, and national and regional development agencies.
Furthermore EstIF’s target audience are other beneficiaries of EU funded projects, such as private and public companies, NGOs, associations, research institutes, bodies working on European Territorial Cooperation and INTERREG Programmes, public and private banks and other financial intermediaries, consultants and lawyers involved in projects containing European funding.
Published on a quarterly basis under the guidance of distinguished Editors, EStIF combines articles from EU Funds specialists, best practices as well as first-hand experiences from Member States and beneficiaries.
Articles focus on upcoming changes, introduction and implementation of new regulations or look back on specific problems and solutions including check lists, templates and other useful information for practitioners. Country reports shed light on the stage of implementation in the Member States.
In 2018 each issue focuses on one specific topic such as financial management, cohesion policy post 2020, e-cohesion and first experiences of the assurance package. General articles, interviews or conference reports complement the edition.

Issue 3/18 – Special Issue on Rural Development
Issue 2/2018 – Financial Instruments within European Structural and Investment Funds Programmes
The new issue of EStIF is a special issue focusing the use of financial instruments within European Structural and Investment Funds programmes. Although these currently only account for a minority of spend under the programmes (most still being implemented mainly through grants), the role and implementation of financial instruments has been much debated over the last two programming periods. With the future shape of Cohesion policy currently under debate, financial instruments are likely to continue to play an increasing role in the implementation of Cohesion policy in future, both at shared management and EU-levels. We hope that the extensive collection of articles along with the series of interviews featured in this issue contribute to the discussion on the potential future role of financial instruments.
