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. It is aimed at helping Member States to improve their administrative capacity in managing the European Regional Development Fund and the Cohesion Fund.


For more details about the initiative and application forms please visit the dedicated TAIEX-REGIO PEER 2 PEER portal.

REGIO PEER 2 PEER will be officially launched on 24 March 2015, from 14.00 to 16.30 at Charlemagne, Mansholt conference room, at Rue de la Loi 170, 1040 Brussels.
