Creating synergies between Horizon 2020 and Structural Funds is a current challenge for European Managing Authorities. Enabling these synergies requires work to maximise the quantity and quality of investments, by pulling together research and business communities with the relevant national and regional policy makers and implementing bodies.
The European Commission directly manages a number programmes including Horizon 2020, COSME, Erasmus+, Creative Europe, the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation ("EaSI") and the Connecting Europe Facility. Regulations from these EU programmes, and European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF), set the rules for coordination, synergies and complementarities.
For the successful implementation of such synergies it is crucial that strategies and intervention modalities are aligned. The relationship between cohesion policies and quality, which are at the core of any Smart Specialisation Strategy, should also be taken into account.
The experts of the Interreg Europe Research and Innovation Policy Learning Platform have prepared a Policy Brief summing up the tools and approaches supporting such synergies.
