FP7 Financial & Project Management
|Date:||07 March 2012 - 08 March 2012|
Europa Media is organising a training programme on FP7 Financial & Project Management. This 2 day intensive management training covers the full process from Grant Agreement Negotiation to the post -project Audit, and will be held at the Novotel Budapest Danube Hotel in Budapest, Hungary from 7-8 March 2012.
The course is designed to give you the skills to successfully implement an EU funded project. Sharing experiences and interpreting the rules, we deal with project implementation, technical & financial reporting, communication within the consortium and with the EC, as well as audit and technical reviews.
