This online training provides a comprehensive overview of project funding opportunities from new EU funds (2021-2027) and guides you through the entire project development process: from idea generation, through preparation, creation and writing of project proposals to budget preparation and finally the preparation of tender documents. The training program is based on the application of the Project Logic Matrix (LFM), a management tool that helps you structure and formulate your project idea into a project concept and link your project proposal to the application form and budget.
The method of work is based on a combination of presentations, demonstrations of examples of funded projects from the personal practice of trainers, practical workshops on developing a project idea and creating key elements of your project proposal and interactive discussion of participants with trainers.
