    Abstract

    The objective of this study is to analyse the effects of European Union Structural Funds in human-capital building and their implications to the regional economic growth. EU's regional and structural policies aim to increase economic and social cohesion between the Member States and reduce disparities between the levels of development of the various regions. Less-developed and declining regions (less favoured regions) are helped through regional and structural policy measures co-financed by the EU Structural Funds. Promotion of research, technology development and innovation is seen one of key tools in advancing regional development and growth.
