Training on Cohesion Policy 2014–2020 for EU Member State Experts

After a series of successful modules, registration is now open for the trainings under Module 4 (State aid) and Module 5 (Public Procurement) in December 2017.

The new rules and legislation governing the EU Cohesion Policy investments for 2014-2020 were adopted in December 2013. The new legislative framework introduced a number of changes as compared to the previous round. In order to support the EU Member States in interpreting and applying the new regulatory requirements, the European Commission has been organising a series of training events targeting national and regional authorities responsible for the management of the Structural and Cohesion Funds.

The training material used is available under each module.
