The European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) organises the 47th IQ-Net conference in the Netherlands, hosted by the Managing Authority Kansen voor West. The conference gathers regional and national Structural Funds programme authorities from 15 EU Member States and the European Commission to discuss delivery mechanisms and stakeholder engagement in Cohesion Policy. The regional authority of West Netherlands will hold the conference in Delft, at our second EPRC base at the Delft University of Technology.
The main theme is ‘Preparing for 2021-27 – delivery mechanisms and stakeholder engagement’. The discussions will focus on the early thinking and planning that is taking place in the IQ-Net partner regions and countries for the 2021-27 programme period. The aim is to provide ideas and lessons for the drafting of the future OPs and PAs, specifically in regard to the planned delivery mechanisms (specifically project generation and selection) and stakeholder engagement. The conference discussions will also address the state-of-play of the 2014-20 programme implementation.
