A one-week interactive journey through 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 provides a thorough understanding of essential techniques for successful, results-oriented and cost-effective management of EU projects.

Designed to help professionals understand the complexities of EU funding schemes and keep projects on track, our project management training course covers all phases of an EU Project. More specifically, throughout the course, participants learn how to find EU funding opportunities, how to design a project and how to write a project proposal.
