A learning package composed by five eLearning courses to provide in depth knowledge of some specific rules and provisions linked to project and financial management of EU-funded projects
The following courses are included in this learning package:
eLearning *Getting fear out of EU procurement:* procurement processes are often a key element in EU-funded Actions. However, no specific manual or practical guidance is provided by the EU, as concrete regulations have to be translated into organisational procurement procedures. This eLearning intends to fill in this gap, by providing a clear explanation on the procurement principles and how to translate them into practical procedures, further explained with a step-by-step modality for each type of procedure. Toolkits, checklists and useful formats are also provided.
eLearning* Be prepared for project expenditure verifications:* in this eLearning module, through a practical scenario, some characters working for an imaginary organisation guide participants through the entire expenditure verification process, presenting its main challenges and providing many practical tips and tricks to face them. The course makes reference to the latest version of the PRAG procedures for all Grants financed by DG DEVCO and DG NEAR, but most of the contents are relevant for all types of projects.
eLearning* All need to know about financial support to third parties in EU Grants:* financial support to third parties is often a key component of EU external aid Actions. This means that Grant beneficiaries must be equipped to act as donors within their EU-funded project, i.e. to award and manage financial support to small CSOs, grassroots organisations or other types of entities. This eLearning module clearly explains with practical examples and templates how to deal with this project activity, from proposal stage to award of financial support to third parties to reporting and auditing.
eLearning *#EUinmyAction: Requirements for Visibility and Communication:* this eLearning aims at providing step-by-step guidance to ensure EU visibility within Grants financed by DG DEVCO and DG NEAR. It focuses on communication and visibility activities to be performed at each stage of the project (proposal, implementation and reporting) and provides useful tips and examples on how to best operationalise them.
eLearning *Creating and implementing an effective Code of Conduct:* this eLearning aims to accompany NGOs and not for profit organisations that would like to receive funding from the European Commission in the development and, above all, enforcement of their Code of Conduct.
