Event Description

Target Group
Participants of previous editions of CBA seminars wishing to extend and improve their practical knowledge about CBA; Practitioners responsible for the preparation of the CBA or review of its quality and report its result.

The goal of this intensive two-day seminar/workshop, being the follow up of the ‘CBA Why and How” course, is to explain in a very detailed and practical way how to perform successfully each element of CBA (financial, economic, sensitivity and risk analysis) of projects eligible under EU Funds in different sectors, with special focus on typical benefits and the most used techniques to evaluate them. All presentations will take into account the preparation of CBA in the next programming period 2014 – 2020. 

There will be practical workshops allowing participants to practice in small groups how to review the quality of CBA and how to report their results.

Learning methodology
Traditional training methods used during the first day of the seminar (lectures including concrete examples and case studies) will be combined with very intensive practical workshops on the second day. Participants will work in small working groups in order to find key features of the project, deficiencies and pitfalls (each group will review different case study: railway, motorway, solid waste, waste water, urban regeneration and R&D) with direct involvement of CBA experts, followed by presentation of workshop results by each group, discussion with experts and questions from other groups and final evaluation experts panel.

By the end of the seminar, participants will have improved their practical knowledge how to perform financial, economic, sensitivity and risk analysis of projects and learn how to efficiently review the quality of CBA in different sectors and how to report their results.
