About this seminar
Planning and preparation for the next programming period has started. What do the new draft Regulations say about programming, selection of priorities and programme structure? What changes are in line for financial planning and the financial management of programmes? What are the proposed changes for Managing and Audit authority responsibilities?
This seminar will compare details of the 2014-2020 and 2021-2027 regulations. We will see how the draft regulations attempt to simplify rules, add flexibility to programmes, generate synergies between policies and instruments, and maximise the impact of funding. We will enjoy keynote interventions from senior managers in Czech authorities and we will assess whether the new regulations embrace lessons learnt from current programme implementation.
Key elements for your new programmes include:
- priority setting and links to National Reform Programmes and Country-specific recommendations
- new conditionalities
- the financial tables, financial planning, flexibility
- monitoring changes and real-time reporting
- preparing the new Performance Framework; designing programme-specific indicators
- choices for simplified cost options and audit checks for SCOs
- the accounting function; changes to the accounting year; withdrawals
- risk assessment in financial control
- highlights of the new OMNIBUS regulation
Who will benefit most?
This seminar is aimed principally at:
- practitioners from Member State national, regional and local authorities working with Structural / ESI Funds
- the full range of economic and social partners working with the Funds – including universities, NGOs, employers’ associations, consultants
What you will learn in this seminar
You will be guided by Marco Lopriore and Robin Smail, experienced Structural Funds experts who have worked in Brussels and across the EU, gathering numerous case studies and examples of good practice. You will meet with other national and regional practitioners and have the opportunity to exchange experience and put new ideas into practice.
The seminar provides ample time for question and answer sessions and discussions. There will be practical workshops and exercises on simplified cost options (taking into account the changes of the OMNIBUS), the accounting year, indicators, the new Performance Framework and lessons learnt.
