Toelichting The European Union (EU) tries to reduce the disparities in income between the EU regions. This is called convergence. The Regional Policy Funds are the instrument used to reach convergence. This thesis researches whether the EU succeeds in reaching convergence of EU regions through the REgional Policy Funds. This thesis adds to the existing literature in being the first to look at the budget period 2007-2013, the first budget period with 27 instead of 15 EU member states. Another feature is the use of spatial econometric techniques to take account of spatial spillover effects. The Solow model is the main theoretical model used.
