Is your organisation responsible for the implementation of local or regional development policies, in particular the management of structural funds? Would you like to team up with other European regions to receive advice on how to best implement your policy or programme?
Our interregional peer reviews allow managing authorities of structural funds programmes and public bodies in charge of local or regional development policies to receive hands-on feedback and advice from other European regions (peers) on the implementation of their programmes and policies.
So how does it work?
Peers from a selected number of regions are invited to your region to examine the specific territorial and thematic context, and make recommendations based on their experience and expertise. In general, this onsite visit lasts two days and consists of analysing the regional situation among peers, discussing approaches, solutions and recommendations, drafting a “to-do list” for follow-up action and receiving immediate feedback. Some preparation is required on all sides to ensure the selected peers are well matched to the needs of the host region.
How do I apply to host a peer review?
Managing authorities as well as public bodies responsible for local or regional development policies who are interested in hosting a peer review are invited to submit their expression of interest online for review and assessment by our thematic experts. The deadline for the current call is 31st October 2018. Your request will be assessed on a rolling basis, so apply as soon as you can.
