The workshop aims to build an understanding of public health issues in relation to Structural Funds, specifically amongst officials with responsibility for preparing and contributing to EU programmes and developing projects.

The SF thematic priority 'Transition to a low carbon economy' provides funds to regions to help reach targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions by introducing energy efficiencies, supporting renewables and encouraging low carbon lifestyles. Local actions like improving energy use in housing and public buildings are key parts of the EU response to climate change and will be priority themes in the next Cohesion policy.

The Health Gain online guide, with its use of the DPSEEA model, provides a good starting point for regional officials looking to develop their own plans for a low carbon economy. This workshop will feature a mixture of plenary sessions and small group work.

Aligned with the Commission's proposals for cohesion policy 2014-2020, the workshop will offer regional officials the necessary skills to engage with the new programme requirements for integrated territorial development and collaborative working.

Who should attend?

  • Public officials and experts involved in all stages of the Structural Fund programme cycle from planning to implementation and monitoring.
  • Managing authorities at national and regional levels

By attending the workshop you will:
