The European Cohesion Policy encourages and co-funds regional initiatives to supply public goods, such as
networks of transport and energy, environmental quality, investments in education and researchdevelopment,
such as fostering their development. The local implementation of the European Cohesion

Policy is heterogeneous amongst the regions, local program varying in the criteria for selecting the targeted
area of intervention, in the firms' eligibility rules for receiving the incentives, in the type and monetary generosity
of the incentives offered to firms. As the public goods supplied by these regional initiatives result
from public and private expenditure, it is difficult to disentangle whether the results are determined by
some local specific policy feature, the amount of public funds or the generosity of private investments.
The aim of this conference, organised in the context of the PRIMA FP7 research project, is to put forward
the main challenges that occur today for evaluation of decentralized policies, and to debate on the advances
of research in this field.

The issues that will be discussed include:
- challenges that are to be faced to evaluate decentralised policies,
- how can problem-solving oriented research, including modelling, face some of these issues,
- the role of involving stakeholders in research programs to design more reliant frameworks
- ways to improve impact assessment methods.
