The five-day seminar EU Project Management is taught through lectures, exercises, simulations, case studies, debriefings and discussions. Practice is confronted with theory.

The seminar starts with an introduction on EU funding opportunities and the theory and practice of project management.


The programme offers a practical approach including the following modules:

Interactive training sessions :

  • Theory and practice of project management
  • Fundamental concepts of EU funding channels and instruments
  • Defining and understanding the specificity of EU Project Management
  • Understanding the rules, procedures and contractual obligations involved in EU funded projects

Hands-on workshops, simulation exercises and case studies; all practice-oriented sessions aiming at identifying, developing and practising project management skills:

  • Programming, planning and managing a project
  • How to build a consortium and how to search and select partners
  • How to write a winning proposal
  • Implementing, monitoring and evaluating EU projects
  • The financial management of the project
  • Reporting

Simulation exercises: Participants will practice tools and techniques. Under the guidance of experienced trainers, they will be confronted with different exercises that will help them better understand the challenges of writing a proposal and implementing a project. At the end of each exercise the results of the workgroups will be presented in a feedback session. Collective feedback is a key part of the exercise and gives participants the opportunity to maximise their personal learning experience.
