The Ministry for Regional Development, together with partners from other ministries, has prepared a series of podcasts presenting the possibilities of financing projects from EU funds in the 2021-2027 period. Two of the podcasts are now also available to the English-speaking audience, describing the functioning of Financial Instruments and that of the operational programme Jan Amos Komensky.
A total of 10 podcasts up to now covering the programming period 2021-2027 is now available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Google Podcasts platforms. The first two subtitled series can be viewed on web site.
The first of the podcasts deals with financial instruments, which are a little-known form of providing support from EU funds. The audience will learn how financial instruments differ from subsidies, what their potential is or what sort of applicants they are intended for. The topic is covered by Andrea Ferjencikova from the European Investment Bank and Sandra Illinova from the Ministry of Regional Development.
The second English newcomer is a podcast focused on the new Operational Program Jan Amos Komensky (OP JAK). They English-speaking public can find out which projects will be supported in the field of education in the new programming period and how the OP JAK differs from its predecessor, OP Research, Development and Education. The second podcast is presented by Vaclav Velcovsky, Deputy Head of the International Relations Section, EU and ESIF at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
