Seminar How to Select and Develop a Convincing Project Strategy for EU 2020 Funding: Do's and Don’ts for Local and Regional Actors in Barselona, Spain (20 - 22 October 2014)

The seminar was addressed to all levels of public administrations (and their agencies), and particularly substate authorities or bodies in charge of or involved in the design, development and implementation of projects subject to compliance with European funds. The main aim of the seminar was to prepare participants to compete in the ever0changing arena of EU funding. Each programme or initiative has its own objectives or specific characteristics; but as far as the ‘key rules of the game’ are concerned, elements and success criteria continue to converge and show a harmonised pattern. The seminar allowed the participants to increase the success rate in the EU funding ‘jungle’ as well as the absorption capacity.
