Europa Media was founded in 2003 by two individuals who wanted to share their experience gained in proposal development and project management under EU programmes with other interested parties. The EU funding system is complex and the competition to get a project financed by the EU is tough. Specific knowledge, well-established networks and certain skills are needed to successfully get involved in these competitive projects.
Europa Media’s mission has thus been to provide clear and structured information about EU funding and improve the skills of people in project development and management. This way, scientists, engineers, enterprises, non-governmental organizations and other individuals with excellent ideas can turn these ideas into successful project proposals, and obtain the necessary skills to cope with the administrative and reporting requirements of EU-funded projects. Nowadays, more than 15 people are working to support individuals and organizations in international collaboration within EU projects.
Is that easy? Definitely not; but it can be learned, and the effort is worth it.
Our services include developing and managing information portals on EU funds, organising e-training courses, producing electronic and paper-based publications such as guideline documents and comprehensive handbooks on EU proposal development and project management. We share our experience through websites, social networks, blogs and other online and offline media. We are also collecting other publications and ask the expert opinion of other experienced managers. Our consultancy services are offered in all phases of a project’s lifetime – from conceiving a proposal until post-project audits – depending on the needs and complexity of the project.
Since our establishment, we have organized more than 100 EU-related training courses which were attended by more than 5,000 participants from all over the world. Our training courses vary in their level of difficulty, length and theme; but they have one common feature:
