EU Projects Training

Master EU Grants

Privanova organises and delivers training on all aspects of proposal preparation (pre-submission) and EU project management (post-grant). With the targeted training provided by our highly skilled staff, you will improve your organisation's chances of success in accessing the EU funding and delivering impactful projects. Designed to provide practical advice on propoosal preparation and grant management, our training is devided into different modules covering both proposal management and project active phase. 

The main benefit of our modular approach to EU Projects Training is that it allows learners to study small, focused topics that can be combined, and retain information better. This approach is of interest to busy professionals who may not have the time to commit to a traditional, long-term in-person training program. Based on real life experiences in drafting, evaluating and managing EU projects, we will make sure to deliver engaging and interactive training, with focus on practical application and real-world examples.



"My team and I attended Privanova's EU Projects Training and were thoroughly satisfied with the quality of the training provided. The modules were well-structured and covered everything we needed. The trainers were highly skilled. Thanks to the training, we now have a dedicated EU Projects support team."

Evaluations, Reviews
& Ethics Checks

Our training modules rely on our real life experience with both project management and project evaluation. Working with different EU agencies such as REA, ERC, EIC since 2013, we assisted the European Commission during numerous proposal evaluations, reviews of ongoing projects and ethics checks and reviews. This first-hand knowledge helps us stay in tune with the latest developements and transpoose them into our training.

    This group of five modules addresses the pre-submission proposal management activities. Its purpose is to strengthen research management capacities and administrative skills of your team by delivering you modern, in-person or on-distance capacity building activities.

    These modules are independent and can be combined:
