Once an EU project has been selected for funding, the first priority is to process, coordinate and answer scientific questions. However, the seamless administrative processing and financial control of the project represents another very important issue and also a challenge for the accompanying administrative project management. Project management ensures that the administration of the EU project is on track as envisaged, all project participants are involved and deadlines and obligations towards the funding bodies are observed.
Our range of project management services for EU projects
If an EU project is co-ordinated in Bavaria and the co-ordinating organisation doesn’t have project management expertise, we can join the consortium on request as a project partner and take over the task of project management for the entire duration of the project. Moreover, we can take on accompanying subsidiary tasks as part of a service contract, for example on the basis of a project advisory agreement.
Our portfolio in the area of project management for EU projects includes the following services among others:
- Administrative EU project controlling
- Clarification of financial and legal issues during the implementation of the project
- Communication within the consortium as well as with external partners
- Organisation of project events, internal project meetings, workshops
- Advice on audits
- Information on protection and management of intellectual property
Workshops on project management in EU projects
We offer regular, cost-effective workshops on the administrative regulations applicable under Horizon 2020. These workshops offer participants information on project management challenges that can arise in the course of an EU project, for example with respect to reporting or protecting intellectual property, and illustrate appropriate options for action.
Project management helpdesk and employee qualification
We support project participants from Bavaria in all questions relating to implementing and managing EU projects. We set up the "Project Management HelpDesk" in 2010 (firstname.lastname@example.org), which provides answers free of charge to queries that can be resolved quickly. Our project management team also provides more intensive support according to availability on a flexible and case-related basis for qualifying employees at Bavarian universities and in small and medium-sized enterprises.
