Non SF Comparative Case Studies

The non-SF comparative case studies are not specifically Structural Funds related projects but their SF relevance can be high. These case studies are based on the Observatory Capital Study (ECHAA) and are used as Euregio III training and reference materials.

For each case study a detailed description and a summary has been produced. The detailed versions can be downloaded at the end of each case study summary. The full text of case studies always includes a description of the healthcare system and environment within which it operates. It is left out from the the summaries (with the exception of the Netherlands where there are significant changes underway in the structure of the funding system for healthcare delivery). The summary instead focuses on one or more key features that define the project; these are given in headline form as a preliminary route map to interpreting the full text of each study.

Also an indication is given on the potential relevance and effectiveness of these features in coping with a rapidly changing healthcare environment – and the extent to which the various models measure up to structural fund principles. This given in the form of a ‘strengths and weaknesses’ observation.

The final selection of the this set of case studies was based on the potential to learn generalizable lessons, while maintaining geographical diversity.
