Event Description

This three-day, highly practical course, will cover all essential aspects of the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) of 2014-2020, in line with the European Commission Guide on CBA, published in December 2014 and its future in the next programming period 2021 – 2027.
 
It will be conducted by experts from the European Commission, JASPERS – the lead author of the CBA Guide and European Court of Auditors.
 
It explains why CBA is one of the most important tools in the programming period of 2014-2020, not only for beneficiaries of EU funds, but also for national and regional administrations in their decision-making process regarding investment projects. It also shows how the European Court of Auditors audits CBA.
 
How will it help you?
You will improve your theoretical and practical knowledge of elaboration and assessment of CBAs prepared for EU Structural and Cohesion Fund investment projects conforming to the DG Regio requirements (the CBA guide, general and implementing regulations).
 
Divided in small working groups, you will practice all the elements with the direct involvement of EC, ECA and JASPERS experts.  We will also provide you with the most relevant information about the future use of the CBA in the post 2020 perspective and its consequences.

  • Managing authorities, certifying authorities, intermediate bodies, auditors, consulting companies
  • Other actors involved in EU funding programmes and projects
