Invitation to Financial and Project Management Training for EDCTP2 grantees

29 May 2018

EDCTP is inviting current and future grantees to participate in a one-day workshop on financial and project management of EDCTP2 grants. The workshop will be held in The Hague, the Netherlands, on 12 July 2018. Participation in the workshop is open to all but priority will be given to individuals, who are financial or project/technical managers of EDCTP2 projects.

The workshop will cover project management of EDCTP2 grants, including legal and contractual issues; preparation and implementation of EDCTP2 grant agreements; duties and responsibilities of project participants; implementation of project activities; ownership and exploitation of results; and reporting obligations. The workshop will equally cover financial management of EDCTP2 grants, including budgeting; accounting for personnel and equipment; EDCTP financial guidelines; internal control; and external auditing.

The workshop targets beneficiaries of current EDCTP2 grants. However, others are also welcome, especially those who may want to apply for EDCTP2 funding in the future. The training is relevant for both project/scientific managers and financial managers of EDCTP2 grants.
