Funded under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, COHESIFY aims to understand what citizens think of the European Structural and Investment Funds, which invest more than €50 billion a year in projects creating jobs, promoting innovation, improving the environment and upgrading infrastructure in regions across the EU. A key question for this multi-disciplinary study is whether these investment funds affect people’s support for and identification with the European project. On this website, you can read a detailed description of the project, find out more about the people involved in it and access publications issued throughout the duration of the study. If you want to know how the project is evolving, have a look at our blog in the News section.
