Opinion: Lithuania drives bottom-up transparency approach in the EU

What distinguishes Lithuania on the map of EU member states preparation toward 2014-2020 frameworks is agile and also transparent preparation process. From the governance system point of view it looks similar to other EU countries, as there is a “super ministry” coordinating the EU funds related process in general, and various Management Authorities (ministries, national funds, development agencies), which operate closer to final beneficiaries.
