Our coordinator for the Commission for Territorial Cohesion Policy and EU Budget (COTER) Michiel Rijsberman (D66, NL) was appointed rapporteur for the report on “The role of the EU’s cohesion policy with respect to intelligent and innovative economic change in the regions against the backdrop of the coronavirus crisis”, a referral by the German presidency.
Michiel Rijsberman already greatly contributed to the shaping of the structural funds in the next Multiannual Financial Framework through his previous reports and work, including the report on “European Regional Development Fund and Cohesion Fund” of the previous European Committee of the Regions mandate (2015-2020).
As rapporteur Rijsberman will have a key role in the conference the German presidency will organize in September and the opinion could include the conclusions of this conference with the plenary adoption in the European Committee of the Regions, and be presented to the Council on cohesion policy planned for November 2020.
