What we do

Since 1999 we have been organising (often in several annual editions) the Advanced Training Course in EU Project Management.

It is open to anyone who wishes to address the issues relating to drafting and development of a European project: from researching and identifying information to partnerships, from budgeting to defining an effective circulation and communication plan. The Course is practical and operational, and is suitable for those who are approaching European project management for the first time, as well as for those who have already gained experience and wish to strengthen their skills in the best possible way.
There is plenty of opportunity to work in small homogeneous groups, depending on the sectors the students come from and their level of skills. The Course also offers a period of assistance in drafting a project, which the student will develop autonomously with the help of our tutors. Upon completion of the project students may be awarded the course diploma (which is not compulsory as students will, in any case, receive an attendance certificate).

Since 2004 the Advanced Training Course in EU Project Management has been held alongside the European Project Management Course, designed to analyse all the issues related to the life of an approved project: relations with the European Commission, techniques and tools for managing projects and partnerships, monitoring and assessment, economic and financial management and reporting. In this case too, interactivity between lecturers and students is of vital importance for the success of the course: that is why there is ample opportunity for questions and practice. Both courses run full-time for a week, during which there will be parallel initiatives and additional services, which vary depending on the edition: in-depth studies, optional seminars, etc. The Centre also offers special seminars covering project management on various issues: the environment, research, territorial cooperation, lifelong learning, etc., usually in conjunction with the release of calls for proposals that are particularly relevant. Seminars usually run for one or two days, and focus on a call for proposals or specific programme of particular complexity and interest, or on issues with a common relevance.

The Centre can enter into special agreements with organisations and businesses that require training for a significant number of people, adjusting and targeting the courses in order to meet their specific needs. Such training activities may be carried out directly on the applicant’s premises.i
