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.

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.
