Bruegel‘s new policy brief ‘Is Structural Spending on Solid Foundations?‘ analyses the performance of EU structural funds, asking questions that need to be addressed in the ongoing budget review: Is each euro invested where it will yield the highest return? And how much real redistribution across regions occurs as a result of structural funds?
