The European Commission launched last week a consultation on the ESF programming period of 2007-2013.

11 February 2016

The purpose of the consultations is to complete the analysis and findings of a series of thematic studies commissioned by the DG EMPL in the framework of the ESF ex-post evaluation. The consultations seek for feedback from the direct stakeholders and participants involved in the ESF funds during the 2007-2013 in the 28 Members States. The results of this consultation will be analyzed and summarized in a synopsis report and will be reflected in the Staff Working Document presenting the results of the evaluation.

This is an important opportunity to give your feedback from your own experience and submitted online to the European Commission.

Please take few minutes to complete the online survey:

The public consultation is open until 27 April 2016.


The European Social Fund (ESF) is the major financial instrument in support of human capital in the EU and exists since the 1957 Treaty of Rome. The views that are sought for this consultation relate to the 2007-2013 programming period, during which €115 billion (of these €77 billion from the EU budget, the remainder from national public and private contributions) were dedicated to ESF programmes.

Actions supported by the ESF were organized around priorities. For the purposes of the ex-post evaluation these were grouped into five themes:

-          Access to Employment

-           Social Inclusion- Human Capital

-           Promoting Partnerships

-          Strengthening institutional capacity
