At the end of the day, what is the European Union actually doing for you?
PERCEIVE project investigates, in different European regions, how much citizens feel European and to what extent this is related to the implementation of the European Cohesion Policy.
What do we want to achieve?
PERCEIVE’s project will have a great impact at different levels, not only by offering insights on how to improve visibility of what Cohesion Policy does at the EU, national and regional level but also on how to increase citizens’ awareness and understanding of its results.
PERCEIVE project will develop along three years and investigate different research areas by seven team of researchers. PERCEIVE relies on a multidisciplinary portfolio of competences bridging socio-political, regional-economic and public-administrative backgrounds. It integrates the use of both qualitative and quantitative analytical methods such as surveys, focus groups, case studies and econometric modelling.
