Join Europa Media’s winter European Funding Academy and get a practical insight to the EU research and innovation projects and gain hands-on knowledge on how to submit competitive project proposals and effectively manage projects under Horizon 2020.

WHY Europa Media's "European Funding Academy"?

Europa Media’s trainers are actual project managers, coordinators and financial administrators of our 12 successful H2020 projects – giving you advice based on their everyday experience.

Europa Media is always the first to provide clear and understandable explanations and answers through practical examples and workshops during which you can practice what we preach.

Europa Media is Europe’s leading provider of practical training courses in developing and implementing EU R&I projects.

WHAT: This 4-day intensive course will help you develop more competitive proposals under Horizon 2020 calls and effectively manage your projects.

The European Funding Academy provides a complete insight to the EU research and innovation programmes of 2014-2020 (there are other funding sources besides H2020) and draws on the lessons learned from the:
The first calls of H2020; Dozens of our winning and lost proposals; and our recently funded H2020 projects, including the reports submitted.

HOW: Lectures and workshops on Proposal Development and Project Management

Experience Europa Media's famous "learning-by-doing" approach – presentations in the morning, then practice your newly-gained knowledge during the workshops specifically designed for the particular topics:

Proposal Development
During the course, the participants will develop a proposal concept and key chapters sections in response to a real call under Horizon 2020. Learning-by-doing: that's the best way to success! After going through a simple exercise, you and your team will be encouraged to pursue a new way of thinking - a method to ensure that you get started in the right way. You will then further develop your proposal concept by setting the overall and specific objectives, designing a work plan with work packages, a Gantt chart, and a PERT diagram, putting together an efficient exploitation plan and creating an ideal consortium and a realistic budget.

Technical and Financial Project Management
After successfully submitting their proposals, the participants will understand how to get a Horizon 2020 project started on the right foot, receive practical tips to ensure a sound technical implementation of the project, and go into the issues of financial management and reporting. During practical workshops, you will discuss real-life case scenarios related to project coordination, working with partners, budget management, dissemination, and project amendments, and simulate financial reporting based on "dummy" invoices, salary slips and time-sheets.

WHO: Trainers are experienced Project Managers and Coordinators
This course is built on our direct experience gained over the past 17 years from developing and submitting proposals and implementing projects under the EU Programmes, in particular, FP5/6/7, FP6, FP7, CIP, LIFE/LIFE+, LLP and Horizon 2020. We have developed and submitted several proposals under Horizon 2020, went through grant agreement preparations for those projects which have been successful, and now managing our H2020 projects as coordinator or partner.
