This three-day, highly practical course, will cover all essential aspects of the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) of 2014-2020, in line with the European Commission Guide on CBA, published in December 2014 and its future in the next programming period 2021 – 2027.
It will be conducted by experts from the European Commission, JASPERS – the lead author of the CBA Guide and European Court of Auditors.
It explains why CBA is one of the most important tools in the programming period of 2014-2020, not only for beneficiaries of EU funds, but also for national and regional administrations in their decision-making process regarding investment projects. It also shows how the European Court of Auditors audits CBA.
