The Master of Project Management and Reporting in Horizon 2020 & Horizon Europe is a 3-day practice-heavy, hands-on course that will assist you in gaining a comprehensive understanding of project management, reporting protocols and personnel cost calculation under Horizon Europe and Horizon 2020 and their practical application in day-to-day operations. 

During the 3-day program, you will learn all about the project management duties and practices and gain an in-depth understanding of the personnel cost-related financial rules and reporting protocols of Horizon Europe and Horizon 2020. The combination of practical presentations, the hands-on workshop on personnel cost calculation and the project management and financial scenarios will introduce all the aspects you need to know, from preparing your Consortium Agreement and Grant Agreement to submitting your last Periodic Technical and Financial report.   

With this training, you will be equipped with the tools, knowledge, and skills you need to effectively manage complex research projects and will be able to deliver high-quality results with confidence.  


Topics covered:  

  • How to prepare a project management driven Consortium agreement? Detailed discussion about result ownership and access rights in the CA;   

  • How is innovation management linked to the daily management and the reporting activities?   

  • How to follow IP development, capture and manage results; assess novelty elements and how to decide on the best exploitation route.   

  • Deep dive into EC services to boost your dissemination and exploitation efforts.  

  • Practice-based tips on how to build and what exactly to include into your PEDR- Plan for Exploitation and Dissemination of Results including Communication activities?  

  • Practical tools will enable you to efficiently deliver your project results.  

  • Step-by step introduction to the Horizon Europe Continuous Reporting tool  

  • Lump sum versus cost reporting in Horizon Europe – Differences you need to be aware of. 

  • Step-by-step analysis of the different personnel cost calculation protocols in H2020, compared to the all-new approach in the Horizon Europe program.    

  • How to deal with parallel running H2020/HE projects when the reporting requirements are quite different? Should you change the time-recording protocols?   

  • Why record time in hours if HE apparently has daily rates?   

  • What is a day-equivalent, and what to do when one works part-time or on sick/parental leave?   

  • How to optimize efforts, handle budget deviations, and monitor spending in reality?   

  • How to harmonize national accounting protocols with the H2020/HE Grant Agreement articles?    

  • Periodic technical and financial reporting from A-Z  

  • Financial management of lump sum projects behind the scenes: is it really that simple? What if you have both a lump sum and an action grant project?  

  •  ...and many more!
