Project Coordination in Horizon Europe

9:00 CEST (1-day)
€ 690.-

This online course will help you prepare to successfully coordinate your Horizon Europe projects. It is built on our direct, hands-on experience gained in coordinating projects under Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe. The stories we share at the course are real-life ones and coming from all the best practices and nightmare stories you can imagine that we have experienced in our own projects. The trainers of Europa Media are project managers, coordinators and financial administrators, coordinating at the moment 4 R&I projects (See here our projects).

This course is designed based on this direct experience and is therefore 100% practice driven. 

In this course you will learn all about the nice and shiny side of being a coordinator as well as the annoying and headache-causing issues. The combination of practical presentations and hands-on tips and stories will introduce all the aspects you need to know, from setting up a consortium meeting, through handling delays, IP conflicts, cultural differences, not fully achieved targets and so much more, through surviving the reporting, the technical reviews and the closure of the project, only to continue for at least one more year to maximising the impact of your project.   

What’s more – the quiz scheduled at the end of this course can win you a 50% discount to one of our face-to-face courses. 

Topics covered: 

  • Tasks of the Coordinator: How can you coordinate everything? Should the coordinator be an expert in the scientific field the project addresses? In innovation? In dissemination? In Open Science? In Research Data Management? In ethics? In the gender dimension of the research content? In gender equality? In RRI? In networking? 

  • Managing your partners and making them work together – How? Why? When? 

  • How to get to know your Project Officer, Financial Officer and Legal Officer? How to make all of them happy? 

  • The first big test: Grant Agreement Preparation and Consortium Agreement preparation 

  • The Project Handbook: How to make sure everything is managed smoothly? How will the partners know what to do, when and how much budget they should spend? How to collect data from your partners, e.g., on dissemination and communication? Do they know what are the best effort obligations? Did they read, understand and do they follow the best practices in the AGA (Annex 5)? 

  • How to make sure that 3 years after the end of the project the partners are ready to prove their contribution to maximising the impact?  

  • How to prepare you consortium for reporting and review meetings?
