At this stage, Romania, as a new Member State, is fully engaged within the second year of the absorbtion process of the European Funds for the programming period 2007-2013. For all involved actors, this process represents a quite new and challenging experience, which will test four different types of EU culture: of trans-sectoral partnership, of the inter-coomunication and co-operation; of the project management consultancy and of accuracy, transparency and accountability within the implementation of complex projects co-financed from EU Funds.  


Thanks to the kind support of the President of GRECO (Group of States against Corruption of the Council of Europe), Mr. Drago KOS, the deployment of such a project, in co-operation with DBB Akademie and Radio Romania Foundation, would be able to contribute to a better understanding of the previous experience of other Member States and organisations in ensuring a performant and correct use of EU funds and to a know-how transfer of good practices in generating a structured consultative dialogue and a relevant network between the various involved protagonists, aimed to prevent the irregularities, fraud and corruption in the implementation process.




  • to consolidate the concrete competences of the various participants in order to ensure a regular, functional and transparent implementation of the absorbtion process of the Structural Funds in Romania

  • to increase the public awareness regarding the need for specialised internal/external monitoring, controlling, evaluation and risk management of projects

  • to create a better inter-communication and networking system between the various involved partners in the administration and project management process.



  • experts, assesors and evaluators from Management Authorities and Intermediary Bodies

  • representatives of public and private beneficiaries of funds

  • representatives of social partners and NGO sector involved in the parallel monitoring and evaluation of the sectoral operational programs. 


Conference languages: Romanian and English.
