Anna Muterko, MA, Austrian Conference on Spatial Planning (ÖROK) Office at the Federal Chancellery, Austria
fi-compass organised a conference in Vienna on Financial Instruments for delivery of the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund.
Anna Muterko, from the Managing Authority ERDF/IGJ Austria (ÖROK, Austrian Conference on Spatial Planning) commented:
“I was especially interested to learn more about the EC Guidance Notes and the reasoning behind some of the provisions and how to implement them. The event allowed me to learn more about the set-up of Financial Instruments in other Member States and to hear how other Managing Authorities managed to overcome the challenges they faced with respect to their instruments. In general, my impression of the conference in Vienna was very good.
An interesting topic for future events could be a more general discussion on Financial Instruments: under which conditions and for which intervention areas Financial Instruments are more valuable than other types of support.”
