lisbon and cohesion policy
Lisbon and Cohesion Policy
  • Commission wants Cohesion Policy to support Lisbon agenda
  • Instruments
    • Community Strategic Guidelines to be adopted by Council
    • Then NSRF submitted by member states
  • NSRF and ex-ante evaluation will have to address Lisbon agenda
lisbon priorities

    • “Lisbon is about everthing and thus about nothing” (Kok report)
  • Kok focuses on key policy areas
    • Knowledge society (R&D)
    • Internal market
    • Business climate
    • Labour market
    • Environmental sustainability
lisbon priorities and cohesion policy
Lisbon Priorities and Cohesion Policy

  • Business climate of limited relevance
    • Risk capital availability
  • Cohesion policy and 2007 –2013 programmes can contribute in other areas
knowledge society
Knowledge Society

    • Raising R&D investment
    • Broadband accessibility
  • Can be directly targeted in OPs

    • Improving education and training systems
    • Reconciling work and family life (Childcare)
    • Reducing early school-leaving
    • Lifelong learning (older workers)
    • Training in companies
  • Good case for investment in these areas
    • But need to be sure that money can be spent

  • And embed environment in growth
  • Some investment possibilities
    • Environmentally friendly transport
    • Renewable energy
    • Promoting eco-efficient innovations
  • Are these priority issues for Czech Republic?
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Lisbon agenda will have to be addressed in
    • NSRF
    • Ex-Ante Evaluation

    • Knowledge economy
    • Environment
conclusions1
Conclusions
  • Lisbon agenda is broad and in a state of flux
    • Most investments can be justified under Lisbon
  • But Lisbon must be balanced with key challenges/priorities for Czech Republic
  • Other important considerations
    • Is there a market failure?
    • Would other instruments work better?
    • Need to avoid high-risk areas because of N+2
    • Can money be absorbed and spent effectively?
  • Ex-Ante must consider these
