Unitary evaluation of activities implemented by Autonomous Region Friuli Venezia Giulia within the framework of regional cohesion policies during the programming periods 2000-2006 and 2007-2013 (Lot 10)

The aim of the service is to develop a comprehensive analytical model of the regional system of Friuli Venezia Giulia in order to provide a standardised and shared knowledge base for the preparation of the 2014-2020 regional planning. This entails the implementation of an analysis of the regional context to be supported by a set of key statistical indicators that can be easily updated by regional authorities. The context analysis provides an overview of the competitiveness of the regional system and the positioning of Friuli Venezia Giulia vis à vis its main competitors.

The analysis is articulated in nine main sections corresponding to the main fields of intervention of cohesion policies (macroeconomic system, labour market, education and training, production system, environment and energy, welfare, etc.). Besides desk analysis activities consisting in gathering and analysing administrative and secondary data, the project envisages the implementation of two ‘customer satisfaction’ surveys aiming to assess the satisfaction of citizens and enterprises with regional policies; it also envisages focus groups and a number of key informant interviews. 

The results of the analysis will be disseminated through a number of seminars and the publication of an evaluation report and a synthesis report.
