The level of error remarkably fell from in 2016 to in 2017, showing positive signs in the EU-wide drive towards less error in its management of the EU budget. 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 anytime as we seek 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 error can only be reduced after understanding and solving past problems, so we avoid relapsing. By looking at the past, the EU institutions are engaged in a continuous quest for programme and regulatory improvement, devising new, updated tools to reduce error to the minimum ; The current discussions on the proposals for 2021-27 are another proof of this.


This is what we are after as well – shifting the spotlight on new solutions to the common errors of the past. This new 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 (including the proposals for 21-27), new tools, important guidance notes and on-site discussions on real cases of EU-funded ;
