What we promote
As a public entity, EPLL is aware that action for growth and jobs and social cohesion requires all relevant actors across the European Union to be mobilised. For this reason, EPLL shall promote involvement of partners, as the involvement has been identified as key to delivering the Europe 2020 Strategy for growth and jobs. Partnership has long been one of the key principles of the European Union funds managed by the EU and Member States together in ‘shared management’. The partnership principle implies close cooperation between public authorities at national, regional and local levels in the Member States and with the private and other sectors.
