Third Call Implementation Workshops

With the contracting phase for most of the Third Call projects finalised, it is time for the Lead Beneficiaries and their Project Partners with the support of the JTS and the Control Bodies from both sides of the border to tackle the next phase – the implementation of the activities.

The main objective of all the participants of the Programme – the programme implementing structures as well as all the beneficiaries – is to seamlessly implement projects benefiting as much as possible the widest possible number of people in the border communities.

In order to ensure the smooth implementation of individual projects, one of the main concerns of the programme bodies is to keep the communication channels continuously open, making sure that the relevant information is always within the reach of the beneficiaries.
With this in mind a number of specialised workshops are being prepared by the programme bodies to support the implementation of the Third Call projects: Lead Beneficiary workshops (on 24 June in Nagyanizsa, Hungary and on 2 July in Koprivnica, Croatia) are organised by the Joint Technical Secretariat of the programme to introduce the LB-s to the practical side of implementation, with special focus on using the IMIS and preparing the project progress reports; while the Control Bodies held workshops on First Level Control issues with special emphasis on the national level rules and procedures important for each individual project partner. The workshop for Hungarian Project Partners was held by the representatives of the Hungarian Control Body in Pécs on 13 February, and the one for the Croatian partners was organised in Zagreb on 14 June by the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds.
Since most of the projects under the Third Call for Proposals are relatively large infrastructural projects in the field of tourism, their implementation is expected to cover the better part of the next two years, with all the programme resources ready to provide continuous support during that period.
