Training for financial management and administration of Horizon projects
In the Horizon Europe program, there has been a change in the financial and administrative rules in the management and implementation of projects in relation to Horizon 2020. However, at this moment, more than 8,000 Horizon projects are being implemented, and some of the experiences and examples from practice that our team gained on Horizon projects we want to convey to the participants during the training, so that you can implement your projects more successfully and make the most of the approved financial resources.
This training is a combination of presentations/lectures, concrete examples from the trainer’s practice, practical workshops and discussion with the training participants. The emphasis will be on financial issues and challenges during the implementation of the Horizon Europe project, including preparation for the financial audit, but also on the preparation of the project budget and the calculation of real project costs. Our colleague Marija Šola Spasić, financial project manager on Horizon projects, will provide detailed instructions for the preparation of financial reports and financial control and audit during the second day of training, but also for calculating the project budget on Horizon projects during the first day of training.
