The Covid-19 outbreak is having an impact on everybody’s daily life. We send our best wishes to all our stakeholders and their families at this difficult time.
During this period, fi-compass will continue to operate and we are introducing a number of new initiatives to support managing authorities and their partners to respond to the crisis. As you will understand, however, it has been necessary to postpone until later in the year the DG AGRI Flagship Conference which had been due to take place on April 23rd in Brussels.
During this special period of social distancing, we invite you to explore the content in this edition, which includes three in-depth feature articles on final beneficiaries in Italy, France and Slovakia in sectors as diverse as geothermal energy, peer-to-peer car rental and energy efficiency.
In this edition of the Beacon, you will also be able to learn about the recently published audit methodology for auditing financial instruments in the period 2014-2020 as well as the EC’s annual summary of data on the use of ESIF financial instruments as at 2018.
Enjoy reading our Beacon and share it with your colleagues involved in ESIF financial instruments.
