New methods and results in measuring the efficiency of EU funds: The Spanish case


  • Carmen Ruiz

Since the reform of the Structural Funds in 1988 resulting from the Single European Act, Spain has been a net beneficiary of structural resources from the EU budget (which includes the Structural Funds and the Cohesion Fund). This situation has changed in the period 2007–2013, when significantly less EU funds will be allocated to Spain. The country will need to adapt to a changeover from being a net beneficiary of EU funds to becoming a net contributor.
