Target group

The seminar is aimed at all actors involved in the European Structural and Investment Funds implementation process, including national, regional and local officials and representatives, social partners, agencies with an economic and social development role, educational and training establishments, as well as other local partners, including NGOs, community associations and Chambers of Commerce.


This seminar will address issues related to delivering better results and making greater use of simplification with the ESI funds in the programming period 2014-2020. There will be several sessions on the new rules around Simplified Cost Options (SCO) and its different options, on result-based management and JAPs (Joint Action Plans), and on different ways to simplify implementing ESI through wider use of lump sums, flat rates and standard unit costs, as well as looking at linking finance and results in programmes and projects. Furthermore, the seminar will cover best practices in simplification of ESI funds in several EU Member States.

Learning methodology

The seminar consists of a series of illustrated presentations as well as workshops led by European Commission officials, regional practitioners and expert consultants. There will be ample time for question and answer sessions, discussions and exchange of experiences.


At the end of the seminar, the participants should have a clear understanding of how to improve implementation and absorption of the European Structural and Investment Funds and how to best develop and support complex projects with SCOs and JAPs.
