UN Agencies and other Pillars Assessed Organizations & the EU: contractual and financial management masterclass

Course Description

Make the most from this practical overview of all aspects related to the management of EU funded (or Multi-donor) projects!

This course, carefully explains the preparation of project proposals and the funding application processes. The course shows the differences between direct negotiation with the EU and the application process in calls for proposals. The contracting phase is also analysed by showing the characteristics of the different agreements (i.e. the Contribution Agreement and the previous PAGoDA 2). The main implementing rules (i.e. eligibility of costs, reporting, changes, visibility and communication, M&E, Verification of expenditure, EU right of access) are examined through practical cases. The course highlights the differences with the rules of PAGoDA 2, – when relevant-, during the presentation of these topics.

Group works, practical scenarios and discussions are organised throughout the entire course to give the opportunity to all participants to share their experiences and create a list of good practices and lessons learnt.
