More information

Simplified Cost Options (SCOs) in 2021-2027

The use of SCOs is to be considered an integral part of an efficient management and control system for EU-funded projectes, especially after the Common Provisions Regulation (2021/1060) extended their use to projectes under € 200.000. As SCOs are now mandatory for most EU-funded projects in the programming period 2021 - 2027, it is crucial for stakeholders such as Managing, Certifying, and Audit Authorities, Intermediate Bodies, and beneficiaries to understand and correctly apply SCOs. Join our seminar to learn how to streamline the design, assessment, and implementation of Simplified Cost Options in ERDF, ESF+, CF, EMFF, JTF, AMIF, ISF, and BMVI funded programmes.
