EoRPA is a regional policy research consortium funded by national government departments across Europe. It produces comparative research and knowledge exchange on regional policy in 30 countries. Annual outputs include:
- reviews of regional policies in all EU Member States, plus Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, covering the objectives, budgets and rationales for policy and policy change, policy instruments, institutions and the geographies of intervention
- analysis of EU Cohesion policy negotiations and implementation
- assessments of the implications of state aid policies for economic development policy objectives, instruments, eligible areas and effectiveness
- thematic reports in areas such as evaluation, financial instruments, industrial restructuring, digitalisation
The EoRPA consortium meets annually over several days, as well as at regular virtual workshops. The consortium has a members-only website providing access to the latest EoRPA publications and event outputs.
Some EoRPA Reports are published on the EPRC publications page (by filtering for ‘EoRPA’)
