_______________________


The H2020 Research Funding framework of the European Commission for the 2014-2020 programming period reserved the biggest budget portion for research that has ever been endowed from the EU budget before 2014. Projects funded under H2020 are still being run and are going to be subject to EC surveillance for as long as five years after their completion. That is why knowing and understanding H2020 financial rules is a must for H2020 projects managers.

This online course is an opportunity to grasp the basic principles for managing the EC funds under the Horizon framework. It is addressed to all those project managers, accountants, financial officers, who on a daily basis have to document and keep detailed information on how they spend the EC money.  We will discuss the EC’s audit approach to Horizon beneficiaries in order to reassure project managers in their interaction with auditors.

With the new programming period 2021 – 2027 the EU budget envisages even more important investment focus on Research and Innovation, with its new framework Horizon Europe. We will discuss the novelties – investment focus, financial rules and simplification.
