    Main purpose

    The aim of the training was to enhance capacity building amongst LAG managers themselves – in particular in relation to the successful evaluation of applications for financial contributions. The ability to correctly evaluate applications and follow established procedures in terms of 'best practice' is considered vitally important for the effective administration of funds.

    Assessment of effectiveness

    The training provided allowed LAGs to understand what is required in terms of assessing the benefits of projects and how these fit with the local development strategy - as well as 'best practice' in terms of procedures and administration. In addition, the training allowed LAG managers to directly engage with Paying Agency officials and Managing Authority representatives – receiving advice and guidance - thereby improving the quality of the LAGs’ work.
