What is the EU Project Management Training Course?

A one-week interactive journey along the life of EU-funded projects, from programming to project design, proposal writing, budgeting, project implementation, monitoring and evaluation.

Through detailed case studies and exercises on key project design and management tools, this interactive training course delivers a comprehensive knowledge of essential techniques for successful, result-oriented and cost-effective management of EU projects.
