Event Description

This course is a follow-up to the ‘CBA Why and How’ course and it explains in a very detailed and practical way how to successfully perform each element of a CBA. This includes the financial, economic, sensitivity and risk analysis of projects eligible under EU Funds in different sectors. It lays special emphasis on typical benefits and the techniques used most frequently to evaluate them in the programming period of 2014-2020. It will also include the foreseen changes for the 2021 – 2027 perspective.
 
During the course you will take part in workshops that will allow you to practice how to review the quality of CBAs and how to report their results. You will also learn how to adjust the project to improve the quality of the CBA and make it desirable for the EU co-financing.
 
How will it help you?
You will improve your practical knowledge on how to perform financial, economic, sensitivity and risk analysis of projects. You will also learn how to efficiently review the quality of CBAs in different sectors and how to report their results. To exercise the knowledge you gain, you will work in a small workgroup on a case study of your interest, with direct involvement of CBA experts from EU Commission and JASPERS.
 
Who will benefit most?
  • Participants of previous CBA courses wishing to broaden and improve their practical knowledge on CBA
  • Practitioners responsible for the preparation of the CBA or review of its quality and reporting its result
  • Auditors
     
What will you be able to do with what you learn?
You will have gained all the knowledge you need in order to review the quality of CBAs and how to report their results. You will also know how to adjust the project in order to improve the quality of the CBA and make it desirable for EU co-financing, in the current programming period and what will change in the 2021 – 2027 perspective.
