HURO Newsletter 1/2014

2013 proved to be a year full of remarkable accomplishments both on programme and project level. Programme and project managers worked side by side to harvest the fruits of cooperation. In practice, this meant tireless hours of work put into launching procurements, devising and putting in practice project activities, overseeing investments, reports and payments or solving unexpected problems, just to name a few of the tasks dealt with.

In addition, continuous efforts were made concerning the reimbursement of ERDF funds towards beneficiaries in order to fulfil the yearly spending targets of the programme. As a result, the programme reached the target set out for 2013 (74 million €), avoiding any budget cuts from projects. We are grateful to all of our beneficiaries and colleagues for making this possible with their commitment and assiduous work!

During this year several other activities were carried out by the programme bodies and the JTS, including continuous consultations and trainings for beneficiaries, monitoring the implementation process both on project and programme level, dissemination of achievements and preparations for the next programme.

2013 represented the peak of the 2007-2013 period. By the end of the year, the total amount of the ERDF funding available for projects has been allocated (211 million €). Since 2008, over 450 HURO projects came to life thanks to the HURO Programme 2007-2013.

2014 promises to be just as busy and eventful: a series of implementation seminars are planned for spring, the annual event showcasing our achievements is scheduled for September-October, including the launch of a project album and video, while several milestones and activities, mainly related to the preparation of the next programme, are still ahead of us.
