Horizon 2020 Project Management and Finance

This course will introduce the first crucial steps for getting your project started on the right foot through practical tips and workshops

This 2-day training course will introduce the first crucial steps for getting a Horizon 2020 project started on the right foot, provide practical tips to ensure a sound technical implementation of your project, and go into the issues of financial management and reporting.

We recommend this course to those who are involved in everyday implementation and/or financial management of H2020 projects as well as to those who have just started implementing their project as a partner or coordinator, and do not yet have an in-depth knowledge on Horizon 2020 financial issues (for advanced level financial course, please check out our Horizon 2020 Master of Finance and Administration training course).

Here are the typical challenges you need to tackle while implementing your Horizon 2020 project:

  • Going through the Grant Agreement Preparation (GAP) process and meeting deadlines;

  • Preparing an effective Consortium Agreement, handling IPR issues, and getting your project started on the right foot;

  • Managing non-performing partners, creating a team from individual partners, dealing with conflicts, managing internal reports, submitting official reports to the EC;

  • Keeping your books and records in order, administering your costs and time spent on the project accurately;

  • Handling financial issues related to cost eligibility, budget transfers, and payment arrangements;

  • Conducting effective communication and PR internally, with the European Commission, the research community, the industry and the wider public.
