The five 5 ESI Funds represent over 40% of the EU budget (EUR 454 billion in the period 2014-2020). They are delivered through over 530 national or regional programmes and provide a clear local or national link to the EU's efforts to improve investment and economic, social and environmental development. The multi layered and multi annual nature of these funds make a challenge to present and explain simply! Meet John WALSH from the European Commission (DG Regional and Urban Policy) who will give you a short introduction into the ESI Funds Open Data platform - https://cohesiondata.ec.europa.eu/ - and then walk you through the financial and policy achievements provided by the platform (FAQ: http://ec.europa.eu/regional_policy/en/faq/about_open_data/ )
