About the event

Master of Project Management and Reporting in Horizon Europe and H2020 (2 days) – Level 3

This course is for you who want to develop you project management skills, focusing on project management for collaborative projects in Horizon Europe and Horizon 2020. We will go through two important documents; the Grant Agreement and the Consortium Agreement. You will learn how an effective Consortium Agreement can make your role as a project manager easier.

The course also covers how to manage innovation activities in the projects, and what you can do to make the most out of your project results. We will explain intellectual property and how to protect it, how to develop a good business plan and different ways of exploiting project results commercially.

Day 2 focuses on the different reporting that needs to be done by the project; the continous reporting, the periodic reports  and the last periodic report. The course finishes with an overview of what goes on in a review meeting.

The course language is English, and trainers are from Europa Media.

Our Horizon Europe seminars are distributed into 5 topics (A-E) on three knowledge levels (1-3). Read more about the different courses.
