Event Description

Course description

What is this course about?

This highly practical three-day course will give you a complete overview and detailed understanding of all practical aspects of control (external and internal) and audit of EU Funds in the programming period 2021–2027 and the closure of the period 2014–2020. It covers:

  • relevant legislation;
  • methods of increasing efficiency of control and audits;
  • combating fraud and preventing irregularities;
  • practical know-how through workshops on audit of public procurement, audit of State aid and performance audit.

The unique feature of this course is that it covers the experience of internal and external audit experts from EU Commission, European Court of Auditors (ECA), OLAF and the Audit Authorities of Member States.

What will you learn

You will improve your knowledge about errors, irregularities and fraud in ESIF and NextGeneration EU co-financed projects with a special focus on public procurement and State aid. You will also learn how financial, compliance and performance audits should be performed in the programming period 2021–2027.

How will it help you?

We have made this course very practical and interactive. All presentations conducted by audit experts include concrete examples and real-life case studies. Each one is followed by a practical workshop in small working groups with direct involvement of ECA’s expert; you will learn about errors and irregularities, and how audits are performed.

Target group

  • beneficiaries eligible under ESI Funds, NextGeneration EU and IPA III, Managing Authorities, audit authorities, intermediate bodies;
  • independent auditors and junior auditors dealing with or interested in EU-funded projects and programmes;
  • consulting companies specialised in the auditing of EU Funds or programmes and projects.
