- The project aims to create a methodology for monitoring and evaluating public policies, by carrying out a study and producing a methodological framework, with the purpose of assessing whether the ESIFs lead to Sustainable Development in the regions where they are applied.

The general objective is divided into two main objectives:

- Assess the development induced by projects co-financed by the ESI Funds in the regions in which they operate;

- Characterize the various regions in terms of efficiency, determined by the comparison between development outputs and inputs referring to co-financed projects.

The approach adopted has the following specific objectives:

- Identify relevant variables in terms of recourse to ESIF and regional development;

- Collect dynamic data on the use of ESIF by regions and on their development;

- Build indicators for the use of ESIF and regional development;

- Identify significant correlations between the implemented ESIF and regional development, taking into account the Portugal2030 Strategy;

- Build development matrix versus FEEI graphs;

- Analyze the efficiency of the regions in the use of the ESIF;

- Draw the efficiency curve and position the different regions;

- Build a web page;

- Implement actions for the dissemination and communication of results.
