The costs

The Regional Council of Lapland will not charge costs for control for Finnish partners involved in an Interreg Europe project. 

On-the-spot checks

At least one "on-the-spot check" will be carried out during the project lifetime in projects where partners report equipment and/ or infrastructure & works costs related to a pilot action.

Any other on-the-spot checks will be based on the professional judgement of the controllers.
