Information and Consultation Event for VCS in the North West, 25th January 2013

Fri, 25/01/2013

Following on from the recent Government roadshows led by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) which sought to outline the latest thinking with regard to the way the new Post-2013 EUi Structural Fundsi will work, Network for Europe recently organised a follow up event for the Voluntary & Community Sector in the North West.

The event gave information about the latest "state of play" with regard to both what the funds will seek to deliver and how this will be organised. A range of speakers mixed with participative workshops gave VCSi organisations in the NW the latest information on the funds and allowed them to have their say on the proposals.

This event precedes the period of formal consultation in the spring of 2013, by the Government, prior to discussions with the European Commission on the final details of the operational programmes governing the funds in England.
