The fi-compass ‘Survey on financial instruments under the European Social Fund (ESF) - Reflections at present and ideas for future’ was conducted in May and June 2019. The survey collected feedback on current experiences in connection with the implementation of financial instruments under the ESF. In addition, it collected views and suggestions for a further take-up of financial instruments under the ESF, thus helping to shape future technical assistance (TA) measures.

The survey received around 100 responses, providing detailed insights into the current practice and future views amongst fi-compass practitioners in this subject area.
