EU funding For Business was a presentation delivered by Equinox CEO and Director for Economics Services, Bernard Mallia at LEAD Events’ Management Expo 2013.

Among other things, it covered the EU Funding instruments for the 2007-2013 programming period and how they were likely to change following 2013, for the programming period 2014-2020.

It also delved into the principles of establishing a project partnership where this is necessary to apply for funding, things to take into account when submitting an application for EU Funding, the institutions adjudicating the funds, fund agreements and financial control, project management, internal and external audits, project evaluation, project closure and documentation requirements.

Apart from the funding instruments, the presentation also covered project lifecycle cashflow issues and subsidised microfinance.
