The ERDF-Programme for Berlin defines as its main objective the “Improvement of the international competitiveness and attraction of Berlin.” This shall be achieved through a programme with four main strategies and strategic objectives. The interim evaluation has analysed program¬me implementation and goal achievement in four priorities and also at the level of action areas. With the perspective of a potential strategy adaptation, two main analytical questions were raised:
- Analysis of results and goal achievement: What is the overall performance of the OP Berlin with respect to outputs achieved and expected – or documented – impacts?
- Strategy analysis: Considering results and the regional economic development perspective in Berlin, is the current programme strategy still adequate?
The focus is therefore specifically on the level of the programme as a whole. It aims to contribute to improving the implementation of the programme and achieving its objectives.
