Overview and Preliminary Programme

As a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic, ESI Funds managers and auditors are facing a lot of changes and challenges when implementing and controlling ESI Funds under the amended Regulations. In order to create a helpdesk for you and to navigate you through all the difficulties and challenges, we are happy to invite you to this interactive online course.

Methodology

An interactive online course by Lexxion Publisher combines presentations, cases studies and discussions on practical problems. All speakers present live via video and audio. Participants are actively involved in the online courses. By offering our participants the possibility to use their microphones and cameras during the whole course, we aim to recreate the atmosphere of a face-to-face Lexxion course. We encourage our participants to ask questions in real time and to take part in live discussions with speakers and other participants. Additionally, we offer breakout sessions, as part of this format, where participants work in smaller groups on real-life cases and exercises. During these exercises, participants have the technical possibility to see other group members and talk to them (using microphone and camera). There are ample opportunities for the participants to present their own problematic issues, discuss and solve them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

The interactive online course materials are available for download before and after the event.

Upon request participants receive a certificate of participation.
