As we already announced on our website, the first financing contracts of the approved projects from the 1st Open Call were signed by all parties, thus marking the start of the implementation of the projects. While this is a beginning of a very exciting period, it is fair to state that from now on beneficiaries have to obey several regulations and provisions through all implementation period.
In order to best support both Lead and Project Beneficiaries in their activities, the JS together with the IPs and with the assistance of the MA and the NA, set out to organise the first two Lead Partner Seminars, in Oradea, Romania (23.04.2018) and in Debrecen, Hungary (24.04.2018). The happenings were held in national languages, Romanian and, respectively, Hungarian and welcomed numerous participants: in Oradea there were 50 people, in Debrecen altogether 30 attendants.
The main objective of the events was to provide the necessary help and information to Lead Beneficiaries and Project Partners in relation to project implementation, with special regard to the following issues:
- role of the Lead Beneficiary
- rights and obligations deriving from the Contract
- communication activities and requirements
- introduction of the Project Implementation Manual
- First Level Control
The JS and the IPs delivered useful presentations on the above mentioned topics. Furthermore, they were ready to answer questions from the audience during the whole event, thus ensuring a personal and tailored support to beneficiaries and laying down the foundation of the future cooperation.
We would like to thank everyone for making these seminars successful, and we wish good luck to all project partners for the period ahead!
