Strengthening the capacity of PAs & stakeholders: the role of ESIF Programmes

October 10, 2018 from 14:30 to 16:00

The panel will explore the compound role of the ESI Funds in supporting the strengthening of institutional and administrative capacity, with a focus on public administrations and stakeholders. It will discuss the wide range of measures funded via different but interrelated investment strands: the Thematic Objectives 11 and 2 (digital agenda part); the Smart Specialisation Strategies of TO1; the programmes' technical assistance, with focus on the synergies that exist between these different investment strands.
