What makes

you feel

European?

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.

An awesome timeline

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.

Designing new communication strategies for Cohesion Policy? PERCEIVE Project first insights

We have already discussed and assessed the low awareness of Cohesion Policy among Europeans. Considering the self-imposed benefit to every EU region, could it be that the issue is none of ‘doing good’ but of ‘talking about it’? Part of Perceive Project’s research directly targets this concern. We asked to local managing authorities and other practitioners what they think is their role in communicating Cohesion Policy and much more.

What communicatEU? EuroPCom 2017: the European Public Communication Conference

What is the European public communication up to? Experts will meet for the 8th edition of EuroPCom to discuss its strengths and weaknesses. What are the main challenges? How can they be overcome? We already pointed out on our Journal how Perceive Project will be relevant to improve the effectiveness of EU funded projects’ communication and our team will be there to join the debate!
