TAIEX-REGIO PEER 2 PEER goes online! In response to the Covid-19 outbreak, TAIEX-REGIO PEER 2 PEER has enlarged its offer to organise webinars on any topic related to cohesion policy, including the Coronavirus Response Initiative Plus (CRII+), the Recovery Assistance for Cohesion and the Territories of Europe (REACT-EU) and the Just Transition Fund.
Eligible authorities can apply online expressing their preference for the exchange to take place online. Discover more here.

TAIEX-REGIO PEER 2 PEER facilitates exchanges between the national and regional bodies that manage and administer funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Cohesion Fund. It helps civil servants share knowledge, good practice and practical approaches with their peers in other EU countries. This way they upgrade their administrative capacity, thereby improving EU investment outcomes.
