Contribution from Monika Czerwińska, Social Economy Financing Specialist at TISE SA (Warsaw conference participant)

As I am representing a financial intermediary from Poland, I was particularly interested to hear what Financial Instruments are envisaged for the new programming period 2014-2020 and when they may be launched. I also wanted to learn if there will be a gap period between the two programming periods.

I think the conference was very interesting especially for Managing Authorities who are currently preparing the implementation of the Financial Instruments. They could share their experience with other foreign institutions. In the future it might be helpful to invite financial intermediaries to panel discussions to profit from their expertise.

I also appreciate the idea of gathering in one place the useful information on Financial Instruments on the fi-compass website and presenting the case studies. I hope it will continue to develop in the future.
