Energy Efficiency. International Project Management - from Theory to Practice

From the generation of the first project ideas to the successful implementation of projects in intercultural and multidisciplinary teams, the work of researchers and project managers involves a wide range of challenges. IncoNet EaP (STI International Cooperation Network for Eastern Partnership Countries) is running a summer school for young researchers and project managers from the Eastern Partnership Countries, EU Member States and Associated Countries of the EU who are active in the field of “energy efficiency”.

The aim of the training is to learn more about project management processes in international scientific projects particularly related to Horizon 2020 cooperative projects as well as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to support mobility.

Course aim

The main objectives of the summer school are to provide the participants an insight into:

  • the aims, structure and participation rules of Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation;
  • the policy objectives, trends and instruments of international RTDI cooperation;
  • how project cycle management works;
  • how projects are planned;
