Peer-to-Peer Initiative

Published on 21 April 2015

The Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy has recently launched a new tool for peer-to-peer exchanges among managing, certifying and audit authorities (and intermediate bodies) in Member States, called REGIO PEER 2 PEER. The tool is based on the existing TAIEX instrument. It is aimed at helping Member States to improve their administrative capacity in managing the European Regional Development Fund and the Cohesion Fund, including financial instruments. REGIO PEER 2 PEER can finance short-term missions of EU Member State experts who are sent to institutions in other Member States that have requested peer advice and exchange of experience on a specific topic. It can also fund study visits by employees from a requesting institution to other EU Member State institutions to learn from peers and exchange good practices, as well as attend relevant workshops.
