It is a common perception that various aspects of EU Funds make them an impossible exercise of administration, micro-management and bureaucracy. Compared to the relatively leaner management of privately-funded projects, EU and any other public funding does call for added checks and balances Public accountability, fair treatment, open competition and transparency are core principles that need to be respected throughout.
EuropeanFunds.info and 3a Malta are presenting the ‘What’s WHat Series on European Funds’ via a set of business breakfasts held at Hilton Malta.
These sessions are to be held on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th of April, 2015. Accredited by the Malta Institute of Accountants, 12 CPE Hours will be alloted towards attendance.
They will aim to explore the essential aspects of the management and control of EU funds, through the first-hand experience of an accountant and two former Senior EU-Funds Managers within the Ministry of EU Affairs (PPCD).
