1. Trainers are experienced project managers and coordinators

Our trainers and workshop leaders are flesh-and-bone project managers and coordinators, whose day-to-day work is to make sure that their multiple projects are implemented according to the EC Grant Agreement, problems are promptly tackled, and project partners adequately assisted in legal, technical and financial management issues.

Over the years we have helped almost 7 000 project managers and coordinators in understanding the legal, technical and financial rules of the Research Framework Programmes and managing European projects.
