COURSE BACKGROUND AND COURSE OVERVIEW:
The ‘Efficient & effective Project Management for EU funded projects’ (PMEU) is a masterclass course that equips all those involved in the management/coordination as well as all those responsible for the technical and financial progress on behalf of their institutions with the required knowledge and expertise in dealing in an efficient & effective manner with the management of EU funded projects. This course is a masterclass course delivered by experts in the area of EC funded projects and it has been designed in an easy-to-follow manner, irrespective of the experience of the delegates in the specific field of study. The course will offer substantial help and benefit to a wide range of individuals, such as project managers, project coordinators, research officers, legal representatives (i.e. school principals, directors) as well as those working in the International Relations Office of Universities, to deal with the ever-demanding needs of reporting and monitoring of EC funded projects. The course covers all important areas of project management, such as obligations related to reporting and visibility of EC funded projects. Moreover, the course offers a comprehensive overview on the various forms of audits as well as tools for efficient & effective monitoring & evaluation. The delegates are benefited from a detailed review and analysis of financial risks and the mitigation measures for dealing with these risks. Finally, the delegates will be offered a ‘hands-on’ experience with two unique case studies which will highlight the amount of work needed during periodic (i.e. annual) reviews and the evaluation of the project during these reviews by EC.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
• • Acquire in depth knowledge of EC project reporting
• • Comprehend the obligations for visibility & communication/dissemination of EC funded projects
• • Preparing & dealing with obligations resulting from EC audits
• • Understand the importance of project monitoring & self-evaluation
• • Setting up evaluation tools for the project
• • In depth understanding of financial risks & implementation of mitigation measures


CONTENT AND METHODOLOGY:
The course methodology will ensure the active involvement of the participants in all phases, that is, prior, during and after the delivery of the course. More specifically, upon confirmation that the course will take place, the participants will receive preparatory material (if needed), which will cover all important concepts to be presented during the delivery of the course. The participants will have the opportunity to exchange feedback with the organizer of the course, BlueCore Academy and the trainer as well as to request any clarification related to the content of the course.
The methodology of the training is based on a combination of three important elements:
• • Provision of knowledge required (theory)
• • Use of training tools, such as case studies, videos, games, animations & exercises (practice – hands on experience)
• • Feedback/reflection (review)

During the delivery of the course, the participants will receive hard copy material, which will cover the content to be presented in all five (5) days of the seminar. The material will be presented in a form of Power Point (PPT) presentations, videos & animations. Moreover, the active involvement and hands on experience of the participants will be secured through various training tools, such as case studies, worksheets, scenarios & exercises. These training tools are necessary to ensure that the theoretical knowledge gained by the participants can be used in real life scenarios; an important aspect & added value for any training course.
At the final day of the course, the participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the information received and the experience gained in the specific field of study. Moreover, the participants and their institutions will be encouraged to be members of BlueCore Academy, an international hub and forum for entrepreneurs & innovators to exchange ideas, novel concepts/approaches & best practices in the area of environment and education.
