Stronger Simplification

17-18 October 2022, Athens

Walking through all procedures, tools and costs to make concrete simplifications

Join us in Athens this October to:

  • understand the simplification process in full: what is it, what are success conditions to simplification (not only SCO) in terms of costs, delays and quality of interventions (programming, calls, selection, contracts, reporting, payment and monitoring) ;
  • obtain key qualifications to implement simplification measures in your work place (procedures, processes and tools);
  • tackle in particular SCO and to set-up an action plan to apply it in a secure & efficient way;
  • take into account the most recent simplification proposals and good practices.

Key elements:

  • Looking to the most up-dated experiences of simplification at EU and Member-States level
  • Listing simplification actions (quick-wins and long-term success)
  • Presenting all Simplified Cost Options and their success conditions
  • Focusing on possibilities to relate checks and calls to sound outputs and results and not inputs
  • Ensuring the best collection of data, calculations and updates
  • Tackling adjustments of the Management & Control System
  • Focusing on concrete changes of the application forms, contracts and payment claims
  • Using IT tools in a proactive and interactive way (platform)
  • Adjusting calls, appraisal checklist, selection criteria, contract and reports
  • Anticipating audit and screening the selection, contracting and reporting phases
  • Mitigating the risks: sampling, walk-through testing
  • Looking for new responsibilities and skills for the 2021-2027 period
