Montesquieu Instituut: van wetenschap naar samenleving

Successful Preparation and Implementation of Projects under EU External Financial Assistance (IPA & ENPI), Barcelona

Magische Fontein van Montjuïc in Barcelona

Target group

The seminar is targeted towards civil servants from national and regional administrations, as well as consulting companies and other persons interested in enhancing their knowledge on the EU’s external technical and financial assistance instruments (Technical Assistance contracts, Twinning, Taiex and Sigma)

Description

The European Union has developed a number of cooperation mechanisms in order to assist the candidate countries and potential candidates to prepare not only for their accession, but also for the successful management of EU funds after accession. These instruments, in particular technical assistance and Twinning, are also accessible to the countries of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).

This three-day practical seminar will provide a complete overview of all existing and accessible instruments under technical assistance, and the capacity-building components of IPA and ENPI in the current programming period. We will also look at the changes that are foreseen for the next programming period 2014-2020, and discuss their possible impact.

Learning methodology

Traditional training methods (lectures and presentations, including real life examples) will be combined with a highly interactive approach through practical workshops, discussions, exchange of experiences between participants themselves and experts, as well as round tables.

Objectives

By the end of the seminar, participants will have gained a thorough practical knowledge of each step of the process of preparation of Twinning and technical assistance projects; they will have developed practical skills in drafting relevant proposals. Participants will also enhance their understanding of the evaluation procedures and learn how to avoid the most common mistakes..
