Event Description

About this course
This three-day highly practical course will cover all essential aspects of the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) and its role in the project appraisal in 2014-2020 and foreseen changes in 2021–2027 under Cohesion Policy and the Connecting Europe Facility.
 
The DG REGIO CBA Guide, its methodology, practical applications and future, best practices, Operations of Strategic Importance (OSI) and all other the most important questions, including audit will be discussed with experts from European Commission, European Investment Bank, JASPERS (lead author of the current Guide) and the European Court of Auditors.
 
Taking into account that CBA will also be required in the future for all projects under the Connecting Europe Facility, its role in the appraisal process and best practices will be discussed with an expert from the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA).
