This dataset contains data on the Cohesion Policy projects managed by Local Managing Authorities in the selected case-studies of the PERCEIVE project over the 2007-2013 programming period.

The selected case-study regions are the following: Emilia-Romagna and Calabria (IT), Extremadura (ES), Burgenland (AT), Norra Mellansverige (SE), Sud-Est (RO), Essex (UK), Dolnośląskie and Warmińsko-Mazurskie (PL). The framework for the data collection was built by UNIBO after the guidelines set by the European Commission for the monitoring of the Cohesion Policy projects. All partners from the PERCEIVE consortium have contributed to the construction of this dataset by gathering data referred to their own case-study region from the Managing Authorities, some of which are involved in the PERCEIVE project as third-parties: Regione Emilia-Romagna (IT), Ministerio de Economia y Hacienda - Direccion General de Fondos Comunitarios (ES) and Agentia pentru Dezvoltare Regionala Sud-Est (RO).

The dataset is made up of 4 sheets:

  • "1. Categorisation" includes information on projects' scopes, locations, titles, as well as on the managing authorities and other bodies involved;
  • "2. Payments" contains information on the CP expenditure, broken down by source of the funding and year of payment, where available;
  • "3. Beneficiaries" contains information on the beneficiaries of the CP funding (name and location, if available) and the amount of funding received broken down by year, if available;
  • "4. Communication" reports the expenditure in Cohesion Policy-related communication and dissemination activities, broken down by type of activities and year, if available.

A codebook is included which provides information on the variables' content as well as details regards space and time coverage.
