Overview

The new 2021 – 2027 programming period introduces some considerable changes in the financial allocation and control system of EU Funds. The current amendment of the 2014-2020 regulations, caused by COVID-19, will additionally affect the Financial Management and Control System of the New Programming Period 2021-2027. Our experts will help you understand how these novelties will affect your day-to-day work. Moreover, this course comes exactly at the right time when you are working on and negotiating your Operational Programmes. What do the new draft Regulations propose on programming, selection of priorities and indicators, and financial management of Operational Programmes? Our speakers will share their recommendations on how to fill in the Operational Programmes Template and provide their experience when it comes to negotiating Operational Programmes with the European Commission. They will assist in overcoming possible challenges using their rich experience gained throughout previous years.
