Gábor Halász
NESET Expert Briefing, 2013

Development interventions in the member countries of the EU are often financed from the European Structural Funds. In the case of new member countries practically all national level development interventions are cofinanced from the European Structural Funds since the totality of their own development resources has to be used to complete the support from these Funds (in accordance with the principle of additionality). This situation has created a number of new challenges that national decision makers now have to face. This expert brief aims to discuss educational development through European Social Fund funding in the central-eastern European region and Hungary.
