Reporting training seminar 27 September 2017

Event date: 09/27/2017 09:00:00 - 09/27/2017 16:00:00
Event duration: 7 hours
Venue: Utrecht, the Netherlands

Join this training seminar to build your skills in reporting project progress through the Online Monitoring System (OMS), which is mandatory for all projects.  

Please note: This training seminar is identical to the seminar conducted in Malmö, Sweden, on 18 May 2017.  

Who is it for?

The training seminar will focus on the reporting process for lead beneficiaries and beneficiaries. Attendance is relevant for lead beneficiaries, beneficiaries as well as other parties involved in reporting and control of projects from all member states. First level controllers may attend in order to gain insight into the reporting process from a lead beneficiary/ beneficiary perspective. 

The training is tailored to help projects manage their progress reporting, including finance and activity reporting. Since all beneficiaries need to be engaged in the reporting process, we strongly encourage Lead Beneficiaries as well as beneficiaries to participate.   

What you will gain

The course provides you with all the knowledge you need to ensure your progress reports fulfil the strict standards set by the EU Interreg North Sea Region Programme.

Compliant progress reporting is a precondition for receiving regular instalments from the North Sea Programme Secretariat as part of your project funding. We therefore advise you to secure the continued financial basis for your project by attending this key training seminar.

Our experts will take you through the reporting process step by step using a live demonstration of the reporting module of our Online Monitoring System. You will thus learn how to complete and submit your progress reports in line with key criteria used in assessing and approving your reports.
