How to implement the New Operational Programmes succesfully

The new Programming Period 2021-27 has been launched and brings many approach novelties toward the shared management of ESI Funds. There are new, more specific objectives of the already existing Funds such as ERDF and ESF+ but there are also completely new Funds in place. Many procedures and rules have been changed and simplified. Moreover, central responsible authorities in the member states face the challenge of closing the last Programming Period and starting the new one at the same time.

More details about this event:

Managing, Paying and Audit Authorities, as well as Intermediate Bodies, find themselves in a very decisive moment for a successful implementation of the new Programming Period. They need to finish drafting and negotiating Programmes with the European Commission and prepare for the first call for projects.
