Public spending efficiency and effectiveness ensuring good value for money is increasingly important in the post-COVID era. With the combination of the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework and Next Generation EU, there is an extraordinary commitment of resources from the European Union towards the recovery and the building of a greener, more digital and resilient EU. A fiscal effort of this size provides an unprecedented availability of financing opportunities but also calls for sound national frameworks and methods for the prioritisation, appraisal and selection of investments.
This 3-afternoon online webinar (22-23-24 September 2021) will provide an opportunity to dig into some of the most recent developments in the use of Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) and project appraisal in public financial management. The workshop is an occasion to keep pace with the latest trends and advances in the CBA area from a European perspective. It will present good practices and advances both at the European and national level. Practical sessions on real cases will present how to estimate key benefits of investment sectors deemed relevant in the post-COVID era: healthcare, energy efficiency, RDI, digitalisation.
The webinar targets professionals and practitioners who have a good knowledge of project appraisal and cost-benefit analysis and are involved in the preparation and assessment of investment projects in the EU policy framework at different levels of governance, staff of financial institutions and consultants. It may also be beneficial to researchers and practitioners who are willing to keep updated with CBA advances.
The initiative is organised by CSIL, Centre for Industrial Studies, in collaboration with the Society for Benefit Analysis (SBCA) and the Department of Economics, Management and Quantitative Methods of the University of Milan.
