The second CBA Forum meeting focused on the methodology presented in the CBA guide for RDI infrastructure.
The meeting started with an overview provided by DG REGIO on the key aspects of EU policy related to RDI infrastructure and the regulatory requirements of the new Cohesion Policy for 2014-2020, and continued with a detailed presentation of the methodological framework for CBA in RDI projects provided by CSIL Milano.
JASPERS presented a working paper providing guidance on the calculation of economic benefits for RDI projects, as well as on risk assessment and climate change considerations. JASPERS also presented a worked example showing the concrete application of this guidance.
The meeting was held in a very interactive and constructive atmosphere, with concrete questions, exchange of experiences and discussion from various representatives of Members States.
For more information and detailed agenda please see the Workshop Description available on this page.
Closing the meeting, Members States were encouraged to send further questions on any specific point related to CBA methodologies for the RDI infrastructure, if any, or propose key aspects and topics they would like to be discussed or addressed in possible future meetings, or under JASPERS Networking Platform capacity building and knowledge sharing activities.
