The European Commission may withhold hundreds of millions of crowns in subsidies for the Czech operational programme Education for Competitiveness, the daily Lidové Noviny reported on Friday. According to the daily, the Ministry of Education has received a letter from EU auditors, who say the system needs to be significantly improved. The review took place in May, checking up on some fifty projects and revealing problems mainly in the system of internal control. The Education for Competitiveness operational programme has faced problems for years. The Czech Ministry of Education will now have two months to answer the EU criticism.
