In FP6, organisations were disadvantaged by a combination of poor budgeting and lack of knowledge of the financial regulations as applied to themselves. This frequently resulted in missed opportunities as well as grossly under-budgeting their own involvement when successful.
Now in FP7, the Finance Helpdesk provides in-depth training to ensure workshop participants that the problems encountered in FP6 do not continue into FP7.
The Finance Helpdesk is holding 3 Day in-depth FP7 Financial Workshops across Europe.
11 – 13 Nov 2008
The workshop is targeted at Accountants, Auditors, Financial Personnel and experienced Project Managers.
To ensure the attendees have all the tools required to interpret and implement the new rules of FP7. This is key in enabling them to understand and implement their own, or their clients’ financial responsibilities and options in applying for and undertaking an EU RTD project.
The Workshops will include specially prepared materials including: presentations, exercises and workbooks with illustrated examples. These workshops will be conducted by experienced qualified accountants and Project Managers.
The Finance Helpdesk Workshop will be implemented through:
· Explaining and interpreting current written published material,
· Case Studies and examples,
· Discussion of problems and situations from the participants,
· Consultants’ extensive experience in the EU Framework Programs.
