Did SEE programme fulfil its mission?

The final programme evaluation tells it all. 223 SEE project implementers shared their views on the achievements of 113 of our projects.

In short, 91% of surveyed project partners were satisfied with SEE cooperation experience. Reportedly the most easily noticeable project effects were the developed new services and tools, followed by the jointly planned investment, e.g. transport, energy, urban regeneration.

According to SEE project partners the two primary factors for project result sustainability are stakeholder support and take-up of project outcomes from organisations beyond the original partnership. Around 71% of partners think the effects from SEE projects in their region could be durable. Almost 80% are intent on continuing the positive changes initiated through SEE cooperation mostly through continuous cooperation with at least some of their SEE partners and by capitalising SEE outcomes.

Finally, 92% of partners agree that without the transnational dimension of SEE projects, they would not have achieved the same effects.

Details on the outcomes from the SEE programme final evaluation are compiled in evaluation report.
