Bucharest-Ilfov is one of the ten regions subject of the pilot-project "Measuring what Matters to EU Citizens: Social Progress in the European regions", launched by the European Commission, in order to encourage regions to empirically test how the EU Social Progress Index (EU SPI) could be used to improve policy-making, in particular for policies supported by cohesion policy. The aim is for the pilot to serve as a guide for European regions in using the EU-SPI but also to gather recommendations on how to improve the next editions of the index
