    Regional OP

    revitalization of cities as an important stimulus
    for regional development processes. Hence the
    important role of cities in the programming of EU
  • The policy towards cities is differently placed
    depending on ROP
  • A vast majority of regions dedicates relevant
    priority axes to urban projects
  • Some regions want support cities or some of their
    functions but consider these activities as
    elements of ROP complementary priorities e.g. in
    such areas as economic infrastructure or local

  • URBACT 2002-2006
  • Polish cities participate in URBACT projects
    since May 2004
  • 21 Polish cities have been actively involved in
    URBACT 2002-2006
  • Polish cities show great interest in
    participation in the URBACT II projects, this
    indicates a strong demand for the knowledge about
    the integrated urban development within the
    Polish cities
  • Currently the Polish partners participate in 19
    out of 25 URBACT II projects (which makes the
    second place regarding the number of partners)

  • Ministry for Regional Development will commission
    the Ex-ante evaluation of the urban dimension of
    the Polish OP
  • Urban dimension within the Polish OP is
    significant but not quite coordinated
  • In the new financial perspective one should
    consider the possibility to support functional
    areas as the metropolitan areas or cities with
    their surrounding the coordination of support
    for these areas at the Community level may have
    considerable added value
