About the project

This website has been developed as part of an EU-funded project called “ESIF support in the area of health: building knowledge and capacities for monitoring and implementation, supporting innovation and effectiveness” (ESI Funds for health).


The project aims to gather knowledge on how the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) are used to support health investments under the 2014-2020 programming period, and to further develop capacities of Member States and regions to support the effective implementation of ESIF for health.



The specific objectives of the project are:

  1. To complement the existing knowledge on ESIF 2014-2020 investments for health on the basis of specific ESIF co-funded projects;

  2. To assess how ESIF 2014-2020 investments for health can contribute to implementing EU health policy goals;

  3. To further develop capacities of relevant actors in EU Member States and regions to support the effective and consistent implementation of ESIF for health.
