International Training on Grant Agreement Preparation and Management - H2020 Project Coordinators

Thursday, January 22, 2015
Project coordinators
Event Type: 
Restricted training
European Commission building Madou, Place Madou 1, 1210 – Saint-Josse-Ten-Noode / Brussels
Event Description: 

On Thursday, January 22, 2015 “Fit for Health 2.0” will organise a full-day international training in Brussels addressing new coordinators of Horizon 2020 projects. This training is combined with an event organised by the European Commission for single stage and two-stage coordinators whose proposals were positively evaluated in the Societal Challenge 1 call of 2014.

Please note that the official invitations may be sent out by the EC at relatively short notice (expected for Jan 19, 2015).

The training will take place one day after the “Coordinators Day” and complement the information offered by the EC, providing additional presentations and tailor-made exercises on grant negotiation, project and clinical trials management with discussions of practical cases.

More information:

During this one-day training we offer you information on the challenges of negotiating the grant and especially the consortium agreement – the basis for a successful project start and smooth implementation. In a second part, we focus on project implementation and management. You will get insights into available tools, the procedure of project reporting and the various aspects of project management, including IPR issues.  As clinical studies are an essential element of health research in the new framework programme and a significant amount of funding has been earmarked for related projects, a third part of the training will deal with the implementation and management of clinical trials in Horizon 2020.

The training will be given by members of the Fit for Health consortium with extensive theoretical knowledge and practical experience for negotiations, collaborative project management and clinical trials management.

The EC will be formally inviting all successful coordinators so that the registration of this training will be organized by the EC as well.

Please make sure to be timely at the Madou building in the morning of Thursday 22 January 2015, as the security check to enter the building requires some time.
