Effectiveness and added value of the EU budget
Title: Effectiveness and added value of the EU budget
Citation: Florence : European University Institute, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies, 2017
In October 2015 the Robert Schuman Centre organised a workshop on the Efficiency and Effectiveness of the EU budget as part of a project on the Evolution of Budgetary Powers and their Contribution to European Governance. A first seminar dedicated to Own Resources took place in April 2015. The EU budget represents only 1% of GNI but its impact on the economy is greater due to its leverage effects. How can the EU Budget be more focused on results, strengthening its efficiency and effectiveness? Improving the quality of expenditure is the challenge for the next few years. The workshop gathered several high-profile participants representing the private sector and European and national institutions, and it benefitted from in-depth analysis and comments by academics and practitioners.
