INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN A SURVEY OF EU LOCAL AND REGIONAL AUTHORITIES on Europe 2020: what's happening on the ground?:



 

This is to inform you that the CoR's Europe 2020 Monitoring Platform has launched a survey of EU local and regional authorities on "Europe 2020: what's happening on the ground?".

 

  

The Committee of the Regions asks for your cooperation in encouraging your Association's members to contribute an answer to the questionnaire.

 

 

This survey enquires into the implementation of Europe 2020 Flagship Initiatives, National Reform Programmes and country specific recommendations,­ focusing on whether Europe 2020 adds value to your local and regional policies and whether it is being implemented in partnership by all government levels (possibly through Territorial Pacts or other multilevel governance tools).

 

The outcome of this survey will feed into the 2nd CoR Monitoring Report on Europe 2020, to be published in December 2011 as a contribution to the European Commission's 2012 Annual Growth Survey; just before the 2012 Spring European Council gives political guidance for the 2nd European Semester.

 

Section II of this questionnaire asks to present at least one example of a policy by means of which respondent administrations contribute to the Europe 2020 goals and targets, to be mentioned in the Report.

 

The CoR would be extremely grateful if you could invite your member administrations to contribute to this survey.

 

The questionnaire is available at: http://www.cor.europa.eu/europe2020

(at present in English, but will be available soon in all languages)

 

Questionnaires must be sent to europe2020@cor.europa.eu by 19 September 2011.

 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
