Intensive training course on the financial rules and reporting and of Horizon 2020 projects.

This is a 1 and 1/2 day adapted version of our Master of Finance and Administration and EC audits training course, for those who need a good overview of the finances in Horizon 2020 but lack the time to attend a 3-day course.

During this course you will learn from first-hand experience and through examples of our more than 15 currently running projects, you will be able to ask the questions you might have, especially now with all the new updates in the 5.0 version of the Annotated Model Grant Agreement!


1. Trainers are experienced Project Managers and Coordinators

Our trainers and workshop leaders are flesh-and-bone project managers and coordinators, whose day-to-day work is to make sure that their multiple projects are implemented according to the EC Grant Agreement, problems are promptly tackled, and project partners adequately assisted in legal, technical and financial management issues.

Over the years, we have helped thousands of project managers, financial administrators and coordinators in understanding the legal, technical and financial rules of the Research Framework Programme, effectively managing their projects and getting ready for EC audits.

2. Lectures and Workshops on Financial Rules and Reporting

This fast-track course is intended to provide a complete insight to Horizon 2020 financial issues through a mix of presentations and a hands-on workshop:

On the first day we will start with an extended presentation covering from A to Z all of the issues of Horizon 2020 financial issues.

On day two, you will go through Europa Media's famous financial reporting workshop to simulate financial reporting under H2020: together with your group mates, you will fill in an actual financial statement for an H2020 project using custom-made documentation including timesheets, salary slips and invoices.

After introducing the possible solutions of the workshop, the day will close with conclusions and recommendations where you will have the chance to ask questions regarding your specific project.
