Background: REGIO PEER 2 PEER tool
The Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy is launching a new tool for peer-to-peer exchanges among managing, certifying and audit authorities in Member States, called REGIO PEER 2 PEER. The tool is based on the existing TAIEX instrument, already in use by the Directorate-General European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations.
