Nr 49. - Summer 2014 – Building Partnerships
The Summer edition of Panorama magazine offers an update on the progress of adoption of Partnership Agreements, and goes into detail on the first agreement adopted – Denmark's – with an interview with the heads of the Danish Managing Authorities. We also look back at ten years of enlargement with an overview of the progress made by the ten Member States who joined the Union in 2004 and how they have benefitted from Cohesion Policy.
Elsewhere in this issue we describe the important new governance guidelines and tools designed to combat fraud; go behind the scenes at the Committee of the Regions as they celebrate their 20th anniversary; highlight the work of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund in supporting coastal businesses and communities; and there is a report from this year's World Urban Forum in Medellín, attended by Commissioner Hahn.
As in previous issues our readers contribute to the debate in the "In Your Own Words" section where representatives from Member States, regions and associations across Europe share their thoughts on the reform and their hopes for the new funding period. You will also find the usual selection of news items and featured projects from across the EU.
