Financial seminar in Rostock - review
More than 50 participants took part in the first financial seminar of the Programme in Rostock on 3 June. In total 20 projects were represented by projects' financial managers and projects' first level controllers.
During the seminar participants were informed and shared experience on financial management, first level control of the projects, projects reporting system and available calculation tools, eligibility of expenditure and reimbursement and horizontal rules. As well topics like cost sharing, bid-at-three rule and timesheets were commonly discussed. There was also possibility to work in more details with two case studies dealing with cost sharing and eligibility issues. Through the whole seminar the JTS explained the rules by giving practical examples and lessons learned from the past.
An external controller from RÖVERBRÖNNER KG, which was involved in checking the EU funded projects in the previous two programming periods, gave an overview of their experience.
