Overview & Methodology

The Study Visit offers a useful opportunity to learn directly from successful projects on the implementation of Simplified Cost Options.
It combines intensive trainings with practical on-the-spot visits to the projects.
During the 3-days study visit, we will visit one project per day: one financed by ERDF and two financed by ESF. Each of them uses a different type of SCO.

You will become acquainted with the development of SCO and their functioning in the current programming period, receiving useful tipps to implement them post-2020.

The Study-Visit will be conducted by a local expert on SCO. You will further on meet with experts from Managing Authorities and Audit Authorities, who will participate to the debate.

Travel Arrangements: Lexxion will take care of catering, hotels and bus transfers during the whole Study Visit.
