Under the lead of guest editor Laura Polverari from the EPRC of the University of Strathclyde, the first issue of EStIF in 2017 is devoted to Smart Specialisation as a new and necessary dimension of ESIF programmes. With the 2014-2020 Common Provisions Regulation the design of Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3s) has become a requirement for ESIF programmes. Our authors take this opportunity to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of the design process.

EStIF - European Structural and Investment Funds Journal
With the Programming Period which started in 2014, the journal responds to the growing need for information exchange between the various stakeholders involved. EStIF offers a platform for hands-on expertise in structural policy, and encourages knowledge exchange between European institutions and Member States in the field of ESI Funds.
This journal will:
- Analyse the programming period 2007-2013, as well as lessons learnt from it;
- Prepare for the programming period 2014-2020 regarding management, implementation and control of European Structural and Investment Funds;
- Provide a platform for sharing (best) practice and experiences of Member States & beneficiaries.
The journal focuses on the practical aspects of the implementation of ESI Funds in the European Union. Experienced specialists from both the European institutions and from the national and regional authorities actively contribute their expertise to this journal.
