Europ’Act is the tool designed for the implementation and strategic steering of the cohesion policy in France for the 2007-2013 period. Under the management authority of DATAR, in conjunction with the DéGéOM for the Convergence objective, Europ’Act is designed for the stakeholders concerned by the implementation of this policy.




Further to the ambitions of the 2007-2013 cohesion policy, there is a need to take ownership of its strategic issues and intervention procedures. Supporting the institutional stakeholders concerned by the implementation of this policy (SGAR, Regional Councils, managing Ministries etc.) and the other players involved in the priority domains of action (attractiveness, innovation, knowledge economy, employment, sustainable development etc.) is therefore a necessity.

The national Europ'Act programme, co-financed by the ERDF, is intended to support the initiatives developed in this respect, helping launch and provide food for thought, support and overall monitoring of how the issues of the cohesion policy are dealt with. The idea is to identify, promote and capitalise on best practices while providing all those involved in the implementation of the cohesion policy with pertinent support, knowledge and tools.
