Simplified Cost Options for Structural Funds

Simplified Cost Options for Structural Funds - Pictures Events 202347

The Common Provisions Regulation for the new programming period 2021-2027 has extended the use of Simplified Cost Options (SCOs). Starting from 2021, contributions provided to the beneficiaries of ESI Funds take the form of unit costs, lump sums or flat rates that are mandatory for all projects under EUR 200.000. In addition, this improved management and control system shifts the focus on the funding output.

What are the best ways of facilitating the design and assessment of SCOs and their implementation under ERDF, ESF+, CF, EMFF, JTF, AMIF, ISF and BMVI funded programmes?

Our hybrid workshop in Athens & online aims to provide public officials from Managing, Certifying, and Audit Authorities, as well as Intermediate Bodies, with in-depth knowledge and practical examples on how to identify possible solutions.

Participants receive a certificate upon participation.

Starting from € 990,- (excl. VAT)

A workshop by Lexxion Publisher offers the possibility to meet with experts from Member States and EU institutions, 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 of practical problems. You will have ample opportunity to present your own issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

You can 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.

Course materials will be available to download after the event.
