Simplified Cost Options for ESI Funds and AMIF/ISF/BMVI

The proposal for the Common Provisions Regulation for the new programming period 2021-2027 extended the use of Simplified Cost Options (SCOs). Since simplification of ESI Funds must be part of an improved management and control system, the use of SCOs not only becomes mandatory for projects under EUR 200.000, but above all, it shifts the focus on the funding output. The new practical aspects related to the design, assessment and implementation of SCOs in 2021-2027, require public officials from Managing/Responsible Authorities, from Intermediate Bodies/Delegated Authorities, from Certifying and Audit Authorities, as well as beneficiaries to expand their knowledge on SCOs.

Join us in Prague to learn how to identify possible solutions that could facilitate the design and assessment of Simplified Cost Options as well as their implementation under ERDF, ESF+, CF, EMFF, JTF, AMIF, ISF and BMVI funded programmes.

Participants receive a certificate upon participation.

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.
