PDFMirris report on COST incl. Training School reference


Research organisations from COST inclusiveness target countries (Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Serbia and Turkey) have the possibility, but also the challenge to use several different funding sources for R&D and Innovation such as Structural Funds (INTERREG, ESF, EDRF, etc.) as well as Horizon 2020. Research administrators face several difficulties in this respect.

The BESTPRAC training school provides know-how and the possibility to discuss and exchange experiences. Furthermore, the training gives an input on the conditions of multi-project management with different funding sources from the points of view of project planning, implementation and reporting, audits, documentation requirements, etc.

The training school concentrates on practical examples, exercises and how to deal with multiple funding sources related to the financial administration.

Special attention will be given to:    

  • Session 1: Project planning (financial tools, budget calculations, cost categories, overheads, Consortium Agreement etc.)
  • Session 2: Project implementation and reporting (personnel costs and timesheets, other costs, financial controlling, amendments, internal and external communication and commitment etc.)
  • Session 3: Audits (preparation and implementation for audits)
  • “exchange mart” with bilateral meetings to encourage the participants to exchange their experiences and discuss challenges and best practices
