The course gives you an introduction to finances in Horizon Europe and explains the key principles of EU funding in R&I projects. We will explain how to set up a good resource plan and budget as well as how to report your costs when all documentation is available. The course is meant for advisers, managers, researchers who need to understand the financial aspects. Would you want a more in-depth comparison with H2020 e.g., attend also the Master of Finance webinar series

Who we are  

Europa Media is a unique company 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 15 years.  


The list of topics range from proposal development to post-project audit, covering the full R&I EU project lifecycle.
