This action aims to assess the economic impacts of the Constitutional Funds for Financing the Northeast (FNE), North (FNO) and the Centre-West (FCO), which are among the main instruments for promoting and financing activities intrinsic to the National Regional Development Policy (RUP). The aim is to conduct a study on the state of the art in the European Union and compare the findings with the Brazilian reality. The information obtained in the study will be presented at a workshop with the participation of representatives from the Ministry of National Integration, the Institute of Applied Economic Research (IPEA), of development agencies with an interest in the subject of agents operating regional funds (BNB, BASA and Banco do Brasil) and universities. The presentation of the findings will be made during the 54th ERSA Conference (European Regional Science Association) in August 2014. This action is expected to contribute to improving the funds and discussing the appropriate geographic scales to implement and assess regional policy programmes in Brazil and the European Union. The expected result is a report containing an assessment of the economic impact of the funds analysed and a comparison with the European Union situation.
