Europa Media Trainings

Horizon Europe Project Management and Financial Reporting

This face-to-face course is based on our running Horizon Europe projects that have been successful under the 2021-2022 calls. Learn all about the new requirements on project management and reporting in Horizon Europe.


The Horizon Europe Academy follows the life cycle of a research and innovation project: from proposal conceptual development to final reporting and further. 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 and reporting novelties of Horizon Europe projects. We will provide real-life examples, and stories, and explain how to monitor the project implementation. Legal matters, IP protection, dissemination reporting, exploitation routes, who does what and when, and how to set up the project properly?Answers to these questions will ease your project management journey while preparing your periodic ad final 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 from a practitioner’s perspective. Hands-on workshops will complement presentations, giving participants the opportunity to fully experience key steps in project implementation, including 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.
