The study is a summary of the findings of a research carried out in September 2003 - April 2004 by the West Hungarian Research Institute of the Centre for Regional Studies, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, commissioned by the West Transdanubian Regional Development Council. The objective of the research was the foundation of an integrated regional level development policy that contributes to the significant expansion of the co-operation among the West Transdanubian Regional Development Council and the sectoral deconcentrated organs, and to the coordinated and efficient use of the EU and Hungarian resources available for the region in the 2004-2006 period. In the framework of the research we surveyed what sectoral and regional development resources arrived at the region of West Transdanubia in 2000-2003, which elements of the regional programme and to what extent were financed from these resources, what the distribution mechanism of the resources was like and what steps the stakeholders made in order to coordinate the resources.
