Evaluation of the English European Regional Development Fund

Commissioned by UK Ministry Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government (HCLG) (2018-21)

CEEDR is undertaking an integral part of the national evaluation of the £2.8 billion English European Regional Development Fund (2014-20), as part of a consortium of leading UK policy evaluation organisations (led by Regeneris, and including BMG and Belmana). This will involve interim and final reporting with CEEDR and Middlesex University colleagues providing expertise in priority policy areas for SME innovation, finance and business support, low carbon adoption and social inclusion. CEEDR will lead on qualitative case study research, with colleagues from Middlesex University Business School (MUBS) providing expert guidance to the econometric analysis.
