Project management and financing


EU grants under Social Dialogue (SD) budget lines represent an opportunity for unions. Being able to draft and manage a high-quality project is a must not only for receiving a grant but also for ensuring a tangible impact on the beneficiaries. All phases of a project’s life cycle contribute to its overall quality: from conception, via design and implementation, to its final assessment. This course focuses on drafting and managing a project budget under the SD budget lines financial guidelines and taking stock of the experience gained up to now by TU project managers.
