EARTO and Vanguard Initiative welcome the European Commission’s proposal to review the General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER), as it aims at facilitating the combination of shared management funds and centrally managed funds. EARTO and Regions had already expressed their support to the Commission’s objectives to stimulate synergies between the various EU funds as a means to create more impact. The current GBER review offers a step in the right direction for the possibility to combine national funds to certain EU funding programmes.
EARTO members are welcome to use this statement to make their own answer to the EC Consultation.
