EU Cohesion Policy supports hundreds of thousands of projects across regions and cities in the European Union. It contributes to strengthening economic, social and territorial cohesion in the European Union. It aims at correcting imbalances between countries and regions. It also delivers on the Union's political priorities, especially the green and digital transitions.
Kohesio is a comprehensive knowledge database offering easy and transparent access to up-to-date information on projects and beneficiaries co-funded by EU Cohesion policy, during the 2014-2020 programming period. Including the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Cohesion Fund (CF), and the European Social Fund (ESF), the database contains currently more than 1.5 million projects and approximately 500 000 beneficiaries.
We will progressively enrich Kohesio with new projects and beneficiaries for the 2021-2027 programming period in close cooperation with EU Members States and programme authorities.
Kohesio relies on semantic web W3C open standards and open-source tools provided by Wikimedia Deutschland. All the datasets are available both in CSV/XLSX and in RDF format (see Services page).
