The main objective of the survey is to gather the views of these stakeholders on the EU regional Social Progress Index.

Background: The EU-SPI survey is conducted in the context of the project “Measuring what matters to EU Citizens: Social progress in the European Regions”. This, by the European Commission (DG REGIO) launched multi-region pilot project aims to encourage regions to empirically test how the EU regional Social Progress Index (EU-SPI) could be used to improve policy-making, in particular for policies supported by cohesion policy and explore avenues for the improvement of the index. The EU-SPI aims to measure social progress for each region as a supplement to traditional measures of economic progress. Measuring social progress is valuable for the potential optimisation and readjustment of development strategies of EU regions.

This project is implemented by a consortium led by Intrasoft International together with Technopolis Group, Orkestra, ZSI, Hetfa and the Kapodistrian University of Athens. A letter of support of the European Commission is available here.
