EU Funds 2021-2027: Preparation in Practice.
Transforming EU Funding into National and Regional Realities

Lisbon
1900 EUR (excl. VAT)
  • Description

    Good preparation is the key factor for success. EU Funds 2021-2027 allow for a broad spectrum of new funding possibilities. This seminar will focus on the optimal preparation track for new European priorities and the scheme of European Funds. In the proposal of new legal regulation, you will find many key words like: smarter, greener Europe, innovations, circular economy, energy transition, social inclusion, locally-led development. But the core issue is how to transform these ideas into solutions to practical needs and challenges at the national and local level? This seminar is exactly about it. We will discuss main new rules (e.g. project’s durability, financial instruments, tax principles), thresholds and details and apply them to concrete, real life case studies.

     

    We will focus on different project preparation and management methodologies as well as ways of managing national and regional programmes that result from them. The starting point for our practical work will be authentic strategic documents like e.g. development and innovation strategies from different European countries. We will match together territorial approach (e.g. Functional Areas) and sectoral priorities (e.g. Smart Specialisations) into one comprehensive support system.

     

    The soul of this seminar is practical, active teamwork based on concrete case studies. We will concentrate on policy objectives transferred to concrete potential projects,  Integrated Territorial Investments and comprehensive system of support for entrepreneurship. Participants will receive a comprehensive package of information about EU Funds 2021-2027, reinforced by concrete, multi-thematic case-studies and active, team work focused on addressing the essential questions in the field. After completing this seminar participants will be equipped to address the challenges of the new EU Funds and benefit from the practical knowledge and skills in the upcoming years.
