Why participate in the Horizon 2020 Finance Academy?
1. Trainers are actual H2020 Project Coordinators and Financial Managers
This 4-day training programme is built 100% on H2020 project experience and real-life examples.Our trainers and workshop leaders are flesh-and-bone financial managers and administrators, whose daily work is to plan and coordinate project budgets, prepare financial statements, manage and control project spending, handle amendments and reallocations, and assist our project partners in their financial management and reporting of their H2020 projects. Their projects were recently subject of an EC audit.
