This is followed by five cycles of peer reviews, with meetings held in different participating Member States, covering respectively the domains of governance & policy co-ordination, consolidation & growth, finance, start-up support and identity. The results will be summarised and presented on paper, as a clickable online matrix and at a dissemination conference in Brussels, where they can be accessed by all Structural Fund bodies and by others.
