Three days of trainings
The first day focuses on finance reporting. The training is targeted at lead partners, lead partner finance managers and lead partner’s controllers of Interreg Europe projects.
During the training, we will cover information and updates on financial reporting and control procedures and requirements related to the management of Interreg Europe projects. The participants will also have an opportunity to discuss finance-related matters with the joint secretariat, finance managers and controllers of other projects.
The second day is dedicated to activities and results reporting. The training is targeted at lead partners of Interreg Europe projects.
This will be an opportunity to learn more about the programme’s expectations related to the reporting of activities, good practices and results. The participants will also get useful tips and advice through practical exercises.
The third day is all about communication. The training is targeted at lead partners and communication managers of Interreg Europe projects.
Project representatives will get guidance on the Interreg Europe publicity requirements, as well as some helpful advice and tips for making project communication activities as effective and attractive as possible.
