The Winter edition of Panorama magazine takes as its theme the reformed Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 and analyses the details of what this means for all stakeholders. In an exclusive interview European Commission President Barroso outlines how the reformed Cohesion Policy will help create growth and jobs and achieve the objectives of the Europe2020 Strategy.
Our readers also contribute to the debate in an expanded "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.
Elsewhere in this issue we outline the key points of the reform and the thematic priorities; describe the budget approval process from the European Parliament's point of view; provide information on how to apply for funding and a review of communications strategies and obligations. You will also find the usual selection of news items and featured projects from across the EU.
