    Are you willing to go the extra mile to become the next generation of Data Protection Officer? Because this is what we, at EIPA, have done when preparing this Data Protection Certification course for you! In a time of unprecedented challenges to our status quo, with organisations forced to adapt overnight to the new normal, data protection has been ranking high on the European agenda. More than ever, you will play an essential role in supporting your organisation’s safeguarding of the privacy rights in a time of accelerated digital transformation. Our Data Protection Certification course is here to help you reach that goal, and this is why a multifaceted approach in delivering this course is paramount.

    Experts and practitioners at the forefront of data protection will guide you along the legal framework of the European data protection legislation, while elaborating on some of the most pressing privacy-related issues that have emerged in the context of the pandemicincluding data protection and cybersecurity. This will involve applying an interactive and on-the-job methodology: role playing, concrete and realistic case studies, with both successful and non-successful outcomes and peer-to-peer discussions. By the end of the course, you will be provided with all the tools to design or augment a thorough data protection compliance programme in your organisation.

    Course: “Mastering Negotiation Skills in a Cross-Cultural Environment”, December 6-7 (EIPA, Maastricht)

    Maastricht, The Netherlands

    The world is becoming increasingly smaller. Globalisation has impacted the way we all work, creating key trading partners out of once-distant economies. Now more than ever, is it important to forge strong, long-lasting relationships which can support increasing international business. The intercultural nature of these relationships requires our natural ways of behaving, acting and thinking to be adapted.

    It is not always easy to get a message across and convince people of our ideas when they come from the same background. Yet, the challenge is even greater when they have differing values and beliefs, organise their world in alternative ways, communicate and listen differently. To influence a communication/negotiation process with integrity, we need to reflect on our own behaviour in interpersonal and intercultural relations.

    Course: “Implementing the new EU Structural and Cohesion Funds Programmes Alongside the Recovery and Resilience Facility”, December 6-7 and 9 (EIPA, Maastricht)

    Online Event

    The European Commission wants to agree all new Structural and Cohesion Funds programmes (2021-2027) by the end of 2022 at the latest. Many are still being negotiated and finalised. What do the new programmes look like and how do they differ from the 2014-2020 programmes? And how can the new Structural Fund Programmes best complement the RRF and the Recovery and Resilience Plans of Member States?

    In this course you will see how the new Regulations have changed programmes, how programmes address the twin Green and Digital Agendas, and support an urgent and sustainable economic recovery.  The Recovery and Resilience Plans cover many of the same objectives as Cohesion Policy. You will examine how Member States are coordinating and demarcating the interventions and generating synergies between the policies and Funds. You will also assess the link with the new REPowerEU initiative.

    What you will learn includes:

    • Changes in the final Cohesion Policy regulations 2021-2027, compared to 2014-2020
    • The link between new Programme priorities and the European Semester
    • What financial planning and flexibility will look like in 2021-2027
    • How to create synergies between SF programmes and the RRF
    • What are the key reforms being pursued within Recovery and Resilience Plans?
    • How to simplify programmes, reduce the administrative burden, and maintain a strong project pipeline
    • Monitoring and payment procedures for Cohesion Policy programmes and the RRF

    You will also enjoy a keynote speech from Anne Wetzel, Head of the French region Hauts-de-France ERDF Managing Authority, who will share the experience of integrating REACT funding into operational programmes, and look at the practical challenges of coordinating Cohesion monies and the RRF facility.
