Getting training on the administrative and financial management of European grants, and staying constantly updated, is a professional necessity for those who work with these types of funds.

The provisions contained in the GA are in fact subject to evolution in interpretation, on the basis of the needs identified by the donor (EC/Agency) during the implementation phase of the Programmes.

In the transition from the 2014-2020 programming to the 2021-2027 programming, the European Commission adopted a new Program Implementation Strategy, introducing significant simplifications in project management, in order to implement the so-called simplification pillar. Among the most significant changes are the structural introduction of the “Financing not liked to project’s costs (Lump Sum), the transition to the daily rate for personnel costs, the cancellation of the rule of the “most recent closed financial year”, the calculation of the daily rate on the reporting period, and other important novelties.

Furthermore, with the introduction of the so-called Corporate Approach, the EC intended to standardize the GA rules and their interpretation, avoiding substantial differences between different programs, which currently makes this training suitable for all directly managed programs.


Our standard training offer in Administrative and Financial Management of European projects consists of 2 training days. The on-site version consists of 7 hours of training per day, for a total of 14 hours. The online version consists of 4 hours per day, for a total of 8 hours.

By adopting a very pragmatic didactic approach enriched by examples and exercises, on the first day, the basic notions relating to the management of a grant are presented, in order to contextualize the obligations in the overall contractual framework.  The cost eligibility is analyzed either by cost form (Actual, Unit, Flat rate, Lump Sum), or by budget category. During day 1, the first, most important, and complex category of the budget (i.e. personnel costs) is deeply analyzed, both in terms of eligibility of personnel sub-categories, and in the calculation of the rates/costs.

On day two, we address the eligibility of the other more common budget categories (subcontracting, financial support to third parties, travels, equipment other goods and services, internal invoicing). Upon request, specific categories of costs present in the ERC, EIC, and MSCA programs can be integrated.

The rest of the training day is devoted to the administrative aspects (non-financial obligations) and the role of third parties (affiliated entities/linked third parties, international partners/associated partners, recipients, in-kind contributors, and financial contributors).
