Who we are
We show you. We guide you. We lead you.
Building on our direct experience with EU research projects, we have come to realise that there is a need for more harmonised information provision on EU funding opportunities and related procedures as well as a need for capacity building on developing competitive proposals and effectively managing projects under the EU’s Research and Innovation programmes.
The EU funding system is complex and competition to get a project financed by the EU is tough. Specific knowledge, well-established networks and special skills are needed to successfully get involved in these competitive projects.
To respond to this need, Europa Media was established in 2003 with a mission to provide and present the dispersed and technical information on EU policies, funding opportunities and programmes in a streamlined and simplified way to relevant stakeholders in Europe and worldwide. With this mission, we have developed, launched and publicised a variety of information sources and tools including web platforms, publications, e-Learning courses, webinars and events. In parallel, we launched our first international training programmes on EU proposal development and project management starting from 2004.
Our aim is to become a bridge between the European Commission and the beneficiaries to facilitate the implementation of various R&I visions within the framework programmes of the EU and to strengthen our position as a leading organisation providing assistance in EU project development and management.
Over the past 14 years, our team has developed a comprehensive portfolio of training programmes designed to facilitate access to EU funding and simplify EU project development and management, in particular under the EU’s research and innovation programmes. To date, we have organized hundreds of training courses attended by over 9,000 participants from all over Europe and beyond. We have also supported many universities, research organisations and SMEs on an advisory/in-house capacity in their efforts to develop winning proposals and effectively implement projects
Are our courses for you?
With this practice-driven learning-by-doing approach, our goal is to enable researchers, engineers, project managers, financial managers, administrators and other individuals to turn their ideas into successful project proposals and obtain the necessary skills to cope with the administrative and financial challenges of EU funded research and innovation projects.
