2013: A High Performing Programme
2013 was a very fruitful year in several areas: the 2013 decommitment target was surpassed by the Programme, hence avoiding reimbursing funds to the EC; in addition the Audit Authority in its annual report has concluded to the very low error rate of 0,68% on audits. The Programme’s financial implementation rate now reaches 60.15%. With such a performance the Atlantic Area is among the top programmes in the EU.
Also noteworthy: 13 projects extension approved for an amount of € 1.1m assigned to 6 projects, the organisation of a 4th call for project (see below). Currently, 71 projects with 639 partners are financed.
The 2014-2020 Programme has started with the initial definition of a strategy and priority axes for cooperation; it has also been recently decided to add the Islands of Azores, Madeira and Canarias to the current programme area.
Among several communication activities, the publication of the Compendium of Projects was a frank success, an important instrument to communicate the Programme and projects activities and results.
The contribution of all programme actors and structures was crucial to achieve these result good results revealing a sound performance of the MA, the JTS and all Programme management structures, all must therefore be congratulated!
