Design and analysis of a database of projects co-funded by ERDF in Research and Innovation related activities during the 2014-2020 multi-annual financial period

The aim of this project is to design and set up a database of projects co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) during the multi-annual financial framework period 2014-2020. Therefore, information provided by managing authorities is systematically collected and standardised. Data on projects targeted at research and innovation related activities will be translated, enriched with thematic keywords and corresponding beneficiaries are matched with Horizon-2020 beneficiaries. Finally, a descriptive analysis of the resulting database will be provided together with an outline of possible research using this data.
