The Experience of Integrated Projects (Ips) for the renewed Community Structural Funds (CSFs)

The Experience of Integrated Projects (Ips) for the renewed Community Structural Funds (CSFs)


Abstract

The Campania Operational Programme shares the Community Structural Fund’s objectives to provide incentives for development throught a radical change in the programming and management of actions and stakeholder practices through Integrated Projects.

The Campania Region proposes its experience as an EU best practice. The added value of its Integrated Projects is:
a) balance between governance and government;
b) integration between funds (European Regional Development Fund – ERDF and European Social Fund – ESF) anticipating the machanisms for the new Structural Funds;
c) partnership process with local stakeholders, capacity building and transfer of know-how.

Weaknesses to be addressed are:
a) political orientation of partnerships;
b) difficulties in harmonising the timing of individual operations with the financial programming of the Operational Programme measures.

In this framework, the Campania Region will concentrate on defining technical requirements and democratic legitimacy for the management of local development interventions directly through Global Subventions. Moreover, without the limits of measures, the Campania Region will experiment mechanisms and structures to facilitate flexibility.
