Training & Knoweledge Building

CF consulting’s training activity takes place through highly qualified courses and makes use of more than twenty-five years of experience acquired by the participation in EC funded projects in all the themes of the framework programmes.

CF consulting offers a modular on-line training programme on specific topics relevant to funding opportunities and tailored to the specific requirements of any research organization, SME, industry and public administration, who are either new or experienced to the funding programs.

In a short presentation or in a one-day on line courses we provide a structured overview of the area of interest, complemented by selected helpful insights, while longer seminar (two days) provides a very detailed in-depth knowledge of the funding schemes, its participation and administrative rules, as well as the differences with the previous funded programs. Thanks to our modular approach, we can tailor our training to your specific needs.

Our training modules include on-line practical exercises that make the courses operational and give participants the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned.

From your own computer you will have the possibility to learn at your own pace of understanding and you will gain the ability to re-consult the materials online.

Among others, the training also includes topics such as:

  • Introduction to the European Community Programmes, with focus on Horizon-Europe
  • How to write a competitive proposal
  • SMEs in Horizon Europe and the relevant dedicated instruments
  • Drawing up a consortium agreement
  • Knowledge management of joint ownership and related IPR
  • Evaluation criteria: financial and operation capacity
  • Project management and how to prepare financial and technical reports
  • Developing an effective dissemination and communication strategy

CF consulting trainers own many years of both acquired knowledge and practical expertise.

Trainees will also receive access rights, unlimited for one year, to an online platform with news and up-to-date information on Horizon Europe programme.
