Preparation of the France Partnership Agreement 2014-2020

Preparation of the France Partnership Agreement 2014-2020

In the context of the programming of European funds for the period 2014-2020, each Member State is required to draw up a Partnership Agreement. A first version of this agreement has been published in France.

This national document defines the strategic guidelines for the use of European funds.
Following a national consultation and a number of thematic seminars held between March and May 2013, an initial draft of the Partnership Agreement (for France) was produced, coordinated by the DATAR.
This agreement takes cross-border cooperation into consideration and includes strategic and diagnostic elements that have an impact on cross-border territories. It has been communicated to the Member States neighbouring France in order to ensure coordination with them on these issues.
The final draft will include information provided by the managing authorities of the 2014-2020 European programmes, which are also in preparation.

Note that, linked with the Partnership Agreement, a study commissioned by the DATAR on integrated territorial approaches has been posted on line2. Drawing on an analysis of the mechanisms implemented during the 2007-2013 period, the study explores the procedures for implementation of the ITI and CLLD instruments proposed in the new 2014-2020 regulations, including in the cross-border context.
