Intensive course on the financial rules and reporting and of Horizon 2020 projects.

This is an adapted version of our Master of Finance and Administration and EC audits for those who need a good overview of the finances in Horizon 2020 but lack the time to attend a 3-day course.

 

1. Trainers are experienced Project Managers and Coordinators

Our trainers and workshop leaders are flesh-and-bone project managers and coordinators, whose day-to-day work is to make sure that their multiple projects are implemented according to the EC Grant Agreement, problems are promptly tackled, and project partners adequately assisted in legal, technical and financial management issues.

Over the years, we have helped around 1,000 project managers, financial administrators and coordinators in understanding the legal, technical and financial rules of the Research Framework Programme, effectively managing their projects and getting ready for EC audits.

2. Lectures and Workshops on Financial Rules and Reporting

This fast-track course is intended to provide a complete insight to Horizon 2020 financial issues through a mix of presentations and a hands-on workshop:

The day will start with an extended presentation covering from A to Z all of the issues of Horizon 2020 financial issues.

After this, you will go through Europa Media's famous financial reporting workshop to simulate financial reporting under H2020: together with your group mates, you will fill in an actual financial statement for an H2020 project using custom-made documentation including timesheets, salary slips and invoices.

After the workshop you will go over some pragmatic approaches in reporting; Point-by-point assessment of the prepared financial reports: Format, content; overall principles, possible bottlenecks, what should and should not be included.

The second day will finish with a step-by-step guide on how to report costs, deal with deviations, and internal allocation issues. Handling the EC requests for clarification, suspension of payments and other issues with a hands-on approach.
