Why Europa Media and why this course?

1. Our trainers are the best
There is not a single financial question Gabor Kitley cannot answer. He has been managing EU projects since 2000 and delivering international training courses since 2004. His experience makes this financial course unmatched in Europe. This 3-day training course is built 100% on project experience and real-life examples. Gabor regularly supports major universities, research institutions and corporations all over Europe to survive financial audits. We ourselves went through six audits since we started our first EU project.

2. Lectures and practical workshops with material from real life
