Eurice co-organises Training for Horizon Coordinators

Fit for Health 2.0 Training on Grant Agreement Preparation and Management

On September 13, the EC-funded project Fit for Health 2.0 provides a full-day international training in Brussels addressing new coordinators of Horizon 2020 projects. Eurice is a partner of Fit for Health 2.0 and actively shaping this event. This training complements the Coordinators Day taking place a day before, organised by the European Commission for all coordinators whose proposals were positively evaluated in the Societal Challenge 1 calls of 2017.

During the one-day training, information on the challenges of preparing the grant and especially the consortium agreement will be offered in order to provide a basis for a successful project start and smooth implementation. The second part of the training focuses on project implementation and management. Insights into available tools, the procedure of project reporting and the various aspects of project management, including IPR issues will be presented. As clinical studies are an essential element of health research in the new framework programme and a significant amount of funding has been earmarked for related projects, a third part of the training will deal with the implementation and management of clinical trials in Horizon 2020.

The training will be held by members of the Fit for Health consortium with extensive theoretical knowledge and practical experience in grant preparation, collaborative project management and clinical trials management.

The EC will be formally inviting all successful coordinators and registering all participants. The registration will close on September 06, 2017.
