Fostering an increased successful participation

The training workshops are jointly organised by WINS-ICT and the ICT-WEB-PROMS projects and are free of charge. The objective is to foster an increased successful participation of the local ICT researchers in EU ICT FP7 initiatives.
Thus, the training workshops both offer an insight into FP7 and its ICT Work Program, and additionally focus on the necessary information for the successful development and management of EU projects.
On a demand base, a one-to-one coaching is also offered to the participants by the EU WINS-ICT project partners. Themes such as the optimisation of project profiles and project proposal in view of specific calls are just an example of topics that can be discussed.
A total of seven training workshops are foreseen between September and November, one in each of the Western Balkan countries covered by the projects. The first events were held in Skopje and Podgorica on 11 and 22 September 2009.
More information on the workshops is available at each project's website.
