FARNET Managing Authorities meeting, Brussels, 23-24 Nov. 2016

MA meeting November 2016

FARNET Managing Authorities and National Networks met in Brussels on 23-24 November 2016 for an exchange focusing primarily on facilitating FLAG cooperation.

Managing Authorities and National Networks met in Brussels on 23-24 November 2016 for an exchange focusing primarily on facilitating FLAG cooperation.
The event was an opportunity for MAs to understand the provisions laid down at EU level and the key steps involved in developing cooperation projects.

A series of working groups and informal clinics allowed participants to explore the different approaches around Europe to implementing cooperation and how best to harmonise national rules and procedures which, if not compatible, can pose serious barriers to FLAGs wishing to cooperate with other regions or countries.

MAs and National Networks also worked through potential support activities that could be provided to FLAGs in order to maximize their ability to develop ideas, find partners and implement effective projects.
Two additional themes addressed were simplifying CLLD delivery and strengthening the results-orientation of CLLD. Presentations included information from DG EMPL on simplified cost options and from DG MARE on the new reporting requirements for the EMFF.
