News from the Commission > EU calls for comments on PROGRESS programme

The European Commission is inviting individuals, organisations and institutions that follow policy debate in the field of employment and social affairs, as well as those involved in national and EU policy-making or implementation, to contribute to the performance monitoring of the PROGRESS Programme by participating in the Annual Survey 2011.

PROGRESS is an EU employment and social solidarity programme which works alongside the European Social Fund. It was established to financially support the implementation of EU objectives in the fields of employment and social affairs and consequently contributes to achieve the Europe 2020 strategic objectives.

PROGRESS supports policy and legislation development and implementation in five separate, yet closely interlinked policy sections: employment, social protection and social inclusion, working conditions, anti-discrimination and gender equality.

PROGRESS is strongly committed to results-based management, which involves the continuous measurement of the programme’s progress towards its objectives, as well as reporting and taking action to improve its performance. This online survey has been designed to collect data on the programme's performance and is executed on behalf of the Commission by an external contractor (Public Policy and Management Institute).

All interested participants are invited to contribute to this performance monitoring process by filling an online questionnaire. It should take approximately 15 minutes to complete a questionnaire. Responses to this survey are strictly confidential and will not be divulged to anyone.
