ZSI is organising a BESTPRAC Training School on "Administration of research funding: dealing with several funding sources (for non-university research organisations in inclusiveness targeted countries)", September 27-29, 2016 | Vienna, Austria

Research organisations from COST inclusiveness target countries have the possibility, but also the challenge to use several different funding sources for R&D and Innovation such as Structural Funds (INTERREG, ESF, EDRF, etc.) as well as Horizon 2020. Research administrators face several difficulties in this respect.

The BESTPRAC training school provides know-how and the possibility to discuss and exchange experiences. Furthermore, the training gives an input on the conditions of multi-project management with different funding sources from the points of view of project planning, implementation and reporting, audits, documentation requirements, etc.

Target group: Research administrators involved in the administration and management of several funding programmes from non-university research institutions from COST Inclusiveness Targeted Countries.

The following countries are COST Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITCs): Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Serbia and Turkey (
