EUSALP Embedding Workshop

28th Sep 2022

The EUSALP Embedding Workshop is organised by the Italian Presidency as an online event. It will focus on the three Financial Dialogue Networks established within EUSALP.

The process of embedding aims at facilitating the connection between EUSALP activities and available funding opportunities by enhancing dialogue & exchange of information between Action Groups members and bodies in charge of managing funding opportunities and in particular managing authorities and intermediary bodies. 

The EUSALP Embedding Workshop, organised by the 2022 EUSALP Italian Presidency, aims to facilitate the transition to the second phase of the embedding process by providing a concrete working session showcasing instruments & best practices which could be utilised by the bodies in charge of managing the funds in order to mainstream and implement common priorities, objectives and strategic projects for the Alpine Region within the national and regional programmes and direct EU funds.
