EFMC Training Course "H2020 Participant Portal Training: Submission, Financial & Project Reporting" in Frankfurt on 27-28 September 2018

European Fund Management Consulting (EFMC) offers a 2-day Participant Portal practical training. Participant Portal is the most important tool for finding information, preparing and submitting the proposal and managing the contract of research & innovation projects under the EU Framework Programme. In this training you will learn how to use the tool efficiently.

27 September 2018 - 28 September 2018



The full training course takes place over 2 days. Each day is divided into theoretical and practical parts with many opportunities for the participants to ask specific questions related to their businesses and clarifications of the outstanding issues. The trainings are held in 3 locations in Europe and the number of seats is limited to 10 – this ensures that all the participants receive answers to their questions.
