This independent evaluation has confirmed the federal authorities responsible have achieved good results in implementing Switzerland’s enlargement contribution to the new EU member states. The in-depth assessment showed that the projects, of which there are some 300, are making a positive contribution towards promoting social and economic development in the 13 partner states. The objectives are being attained or even exceeded in the vast majority of projects. Various recommendations encourage further efficiency and greater thematic and geographic focus.
The full evaluation report is available in English and, together with the summarised version ‘EVALUATION REPORT ON THE SWISS CONTRIBUTION 2015 - Key points in brief’, is publicly accessible at www.swiss-contribution.admin.ch.
