Danube-INCO.NET has analysed the involvement of the countries of the Danube Region in European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF). The data can be found on ESIF’s data platform and it can be extracted according to the EU level, theme, country and fund. We have provided you the information on representation of different funds in each available Danube Region country, EU funds contribution and extracted a document with an overview of all funds allocations per country.

This dataset provides information on planned financing under the different ESI Funds (2014-2020). The data is taken from the adopted financial table and is broken down by fund, programme, priority axis, thematic objective and category of region (more developed, less developed, etc. where available). It now covers 531 programmes available (adopted and draft) as at the beginning of November 2015 and includes the EU and national co-financing covered by the adoption decision. Financial allocations in the programme financial table may change over time (i.e. transfers between themes, between funds) and as a result the dataset will be updated regularly.

Under the broad theme of research and innovationthe European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Agricultural fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) invest in a range of investment priorities and union priorities to strengthen research, technological development and innovation. The image bellow shows the percentage of representation of EAFRD and  ERDF at the EU level.



On “EU overeview” page you can find aggregated information on financing and expected achievements under the European Structural and Investment Funds 2014-2020. Involvement of Danube Region countries in different funds is presented in the graph bellow.


The graph above shows that Romania is the biggest beneficiary of ESI Funds and it is followed by Germany noted that entire country is taken into account. The graph further shows that ERDF and EAFRD funds are the most represented in the majority of the DR countries. In the attachment bellow the text “ESIF finance details for Danube Region countries” please find more detailed information on a particular Danube Region country, funded programme, the fund, targeted priority and both EU and national amounts of funding. The data set also shows the percentage of EU co-financing for each Danube Region country.

Total amount of EU funds allocated to each Danube Region country can be seen on the graph bellow. The results are consistent with  the previous graph showing that Romania, Germany (the whole country) and Hungary are the  biggest beneficiaries of EU funds.
