Irregularities toolkit: how to prevent, detect & treat errors

This 5-day toolkit deals with anything you need to know on irregularities; from prevention to detection, all the way to treatment of irregularities. It is ideal for EU-funding practitioners across all stakeholders.

Results trump errors.  Isn’t this the rallying call of the EU for the 2014-20 period?  With a level of error of 4.4% in 2015, levelling off its equal for 2014, us Member States and the EU institutions are left waiting for the effects of the new 14-20 regime.  Whilst it is true that the performance of the EU is not only a function of its error rate, it is also reasonable to expect a reduction in errors in this programming period to increase the value for money of each euro invested by the EU citizen.

And this answers a legitimate question on this course: why do we have to put a limelight on the negatives of EU funding and not on its many positives? Well, we believe that knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error as well.  In times when error instantly sounds thunder around the world while success only struggles a quiet shine through the noise, analyzing mistakes makes it both relevant and appealing.  By looking at the past, the EU institutions are engaged on a continuous quest for programme and regulatory improvement, devising new, updated tools to reduce error to the minimum possible.  This is what we are after as well – shifting the spotlight on new solutions to the common errors of the past.        

This new five-day course offers everything you need to know about irregularities, through intense workshops and first-hand experience.  We explore past cases, prevention, detection and correction techniques, important figures, new regulations, new tools, important guidance notes and on-site discussions on real cases of EU-funded projects.  This time round we will go deeper and broader than the past, more concentrated three-day seminars.
