1 Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI)
Zsolt SZOKOLAI European Commission DG Regional and Urban Policy

2 Urban and territorial dimension of the future CP
Urban and territorial development Community-led local development Thematic objectives, (Urban) investment priorities ETC ITI Minimum 5% of ERDF of each Member State for urban development through delegated ITI Urban development platform Urban innovative actions (0,2% of ERDF at EU level)

3 Why ITI for sustainable territorial development?
Thematic objectives – linked to Europe 2020 Priority axes: correspond to one or more investment priorities of a thematic objective Need for addressing territorial challenges ITI: Flexible tool to implement integrated territorial strategies Optional, with the exception of sustainable urban development (5% of ERDF national allocation) Article 7 ERDF, Article 99 CPR

4 ITI – how does it work? Bundle funding from different priority axes and programmes (ERDF, ESF, CF, not EFARD), including ETC and Jobs and growth For implementing integrated territorial/urban development strategy For a functional area at the appropriate territorial scale e.g. at the level of neighbourhoods, cities, city-regions, metropolitan areas, rural areas, functional areas Possible delegation of the management to one or more intermediate bodies, (compulsory to delegate for cities in case of 5% for sustainable urban development) Decision on package of operations for integrated strategy – predictability for implementation

5 I T Sustainable urban development and ITI Example: Member State A
Regional OP National/sectoral/ETC ERDF OP Arrangements between city and regional/national level on: Justification of planned actions (ex- ante) Territorial and thematic objectives Planned measures and actions Synergy between different thematic actions Management (division of tasks) and capacity building needs Indicators Monitoring, evaluation I T ESF OP City 3 CF OP City 1 City 2 City 3

6 ITI is not CLLD Greater territorial coverage Greater resources
Top-down, with the possibility of participation and involvement Selection of the areas are not necessarily competitive Key responsibility lies in the public sector

7 When to use ITI? There is an integrated territorial strategy to underpin investments The implementation of the territorial strategy requires integrated investments from more than one priority axis (or operational programme) in a coordinated manner – both in terms of time and intervention logic between different actions Can ensure that the number of priorities and resources allocated to an ITI are proportionate and reflect to the need of the city Management arrangements allows single implementation structure

8 How to prepare for an ITI?
1. Follow the reinforced strategic and integrated programming (Be there, be informed, be involved) Partnership Contracts – integrated approach to territorial dev’t: Coordination mechanisms between CSF funds on national and regional level The arrangements to ensure an integrated approach for the territorial development (in particular with reference to CLLD, ITI) An integrated approach to address the specific needs of geographical areas most affected by poverty or of target groups at highest risk of discrimination or exclusion, with special regard to marginalised communities Operational Programme The way OP contributes to the integrated territorial approach defined in PC Principles on the use of ITI (type of territories and problems targeted) with indicative Contribution to macro-regional and sea-basin strategies (where appropriate) Article 11, 14, 87 CPR (recital 9, 14, 15, 21, 65) Article 7 ETC

9 ITI in ETC Art 10 ETC: the intermediate body to carry out the management and implementation of an ITI shall be an EGTC or other legal body established under the laws of one of the participating countries ITI creates the possibility to combine actions financed from different strands of ETC and mainstream programmes Relevant to cross-border and trans-national programmes
