The tender for this study was launched by DG General Regional and Urban Policy to evaluate the costs and benefits of the different financial instruments and compare them with alternative enterpr ise support instruments such as grants, business advice and guarantee schemes. The overall objective is to increase transparency on Cohesion Policy achievements and improve programmes in the 2014-2020 programming period. The tender was awarded in August 2014 to a consortium of three companies: t33 (lead partner), EPRC, and Metis GmbH.
