Horizon Europe Project Management and Financial Rules & Reporting (2nd part of the HE Academy)

This face-to-face course is based on our six Horizon Europe proposals that have been successful under the 2021-2022 calls. Learn all about proposal writing and peek into the new requirements on project management and financial reporting before submitting your Horizon Europe proposals.

Date Location
Brussels, Belgium

The Horizon Europe Academy covers the full life cycle of a research and innovation project: from proposal conceptual development to financial audits.  
The Academy consists of two parts over four days. (Part 1. is Horizon Europe Proposal Writing on 18-19 October)

In the second part of the Academy, we will dedicate two days to introducing the project management novelties and the financial reporting rules of Horizon Europe projects. We will provide real-life examples, stories, and explain the calculation methods. How to figure out what is eligible and what is not, and how that helps you to develop your budget or report your costs? Answers to these questions will ease your project management journey while preparing your periodic technical and financial report for the EC accurately. 

Presentations will be complemented by practical tips, personal experiences, good and bad practices, which will allow the participants to fully understand the key processes and steps in proposal preparation from a practitioner’s perspective. Hands-on workshops will complement presentations, giving participants the opportunity to fully experience key steps in proposal writing and project implementation, including financial management and reporting.

Who we are?

Europa Media has been supporting public and private organisations to develop successful project proposals and effectively manage projects under the EU's research and innovation programmes since FP5. Over the past 20+ years, our team has been directly involved in writing successful proposals and coordinating and managing projects under different EU programmes. Under Horizon 2020, we have been involved in over 30 projects as coordinators and partners. Our workshops and seminars are designed based on this direct experience we have from our own proposals and projects - we discuss and reflect on a lot of specific problems during these events. They are therefore quite hands-on with real-life examples and stories. This practical approach has attracted over 10,000 participants from all over the world in the past 17 years.
