The regulations reflect the Commission's principles of:
- a more effective policy focusing resources on a certain number of priorities which will be geared more closely to europe's objectives of growth and employment
- the introduction of conditions before european aid is granted and of incentive measures for those programmes which make the greatest contribution to the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy
- more simplification, particularly by defining a core set of rules in common with the rural development policy and the common fisheries policy, which will help to reduce the administrative burden, especially on small firms
A full list of the EC regulations can be found on the European Commission website.
