European Interactive Seminar Preventing Irregularities and Ensuring Sustainable Risk Management in EU Funded Projects


Irregularities in EU Funded Projects May Cause Major Financial Risks for EU Member States

Public Authorities dealing with EU funded projects still struggle when it comes to irregularities. Huge financial costs are at stake for EU Member States who need to minimize the rate of irregularities and prevent them on programme level. If an irregularity results in an unduly payment to a beneficiary, the payment needs to be recovered. Yet, identifying and the correct handling of irregularities are not an easy task.
