Preparing for Closure of 2014-2020 Operational Programmes: Dos and Don’ts - Pictures Events 202357

The last few months of the current year will be crucial in conducting closure for the 2014-2020 programming period, given that the eligibility deadline for expenditure is 31 December 2023 according to the Regulation (EU) No 1303/2013.

Dealing with financial management, control, audit and other aspects which are essential for an efficient closure, our course aims to provide guidance on how to prepare and implement the closing of ESI Funds-related programmes.

The three-day intensive course offers the possibility to meet with experts from EU institutions, Member States as well as the private sector. The different perspectives of our experienced trainers will support you in applying complex rules to your practical day-to-day work. To achieve the best results, we employ a mixture of learning methods.

Our approach combines the three stages of learning to ensure that the participants obtain the best possible understanding of the applied rules:

1) Identification of the main rules and principles,
2) Appreciation of the complexities and limitation of the principles,
3) Application of the rules and principles.

The participants will be actively involved in the course. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunity to present your own issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

Just send to us your cases and questions in advance! We will forward them to our speakers, who will include your issues in the programme and answer them during the course. All information concerning such problems and cases will be treated confidentially.

We will organise different social activities for our participants on site, during which you will have an opportunity to meet the experts and other participants and to discuss your questions in an informal atmosphere.

Course materials are available to download after the event.
