The meeting was organized by the TAIEX office in Brussels and the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure. Representatives of the relevant institutions in the Republic of Serbia participated with up to three participants in accordance with the invitation submitted by the Ministry.

The workshop was held in the Serbian language, and was led by Mr. Kristijan Ležaić from the Croatian Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure - Directorate for EU Funds and Strategic Planning, who is also the CEF Coordinator for Transport in the Republic of Croatia.

The workshop is based on the exchange of information on the methodology of defining, strategic framework and practice regarding the preparation and implementation of projects in the field of transport infrastructure, financed by the CEF program. The two-day program included the presentation of the key institutions responsible for the implementation of these projects at the European Union level, but also the need to establish an adequate implementation framework at the national level (the establishment of a project management unit for projects financed by EU funds, an audit body for the mentioned projects, etc.). Examples of projects of the Republic of Croatia financed within the CEF program, started within the CEF 2014-2020 programming period were presented to the participants. The speaker also emphasized what are the known novelties that will be recorded after the opening of the second call for CEF projects within the programming period 2021-2027.

Participants are also familiar with the detailed structure of the application form for CEF project applications and the characteristic deadlines for preparation, submission and evaluation of documentation and possible risks, as a necessary part of the project proposal for obtaining funds from this financing instrument.
