The term “EU project management” refers to the application, management and reporting of projects which applied to calls for proposal issued within the framework of programmes funded by the European Commission.
The areas of intervention of European projects are multiple: innovation and research promotion, training, education, support to business, environment protection, social protection, health care, rights and justice, promotion of culture, infrastructures, territorial integration.
Each project aiming at benefitting from European funds must prove to have a specific added value. European projects, therefore, have a deep genesis and require a careful analysisand activity plan, so that they are in line with the priorities set by the European Commission.
Usually, European projects are implemented in teamwork. They represent an important factor of visibility, reputation and positioning, as well as a development, internationalisation and networking opportunity for participating enterprises and institutions.
