Can you imagine that you successfully obtain EU funds for your idea? 
Clear win, isn't it? 

Can you imagine that you successfully manage 2 or 3-year long project, produce excellent product/service, get a good final grade and you don't have to return funds? 
Clear win, isn't it? 
Your reputation among your peers and project partners will surely grow. And most important, you will open yourself a door for next projects. Everybody wants to have an experienced EU project manager as a partner.  

The investment in your EU project management knowledge is much lower than the cost of not-knowing. 
Can you calculate the cost of not knowing how to apply for funds? 300 000€ ? 2 000 000€ ? It depends on the project call.
Can you calculate the losses due to poor management, e.g. returning already obtained EU funds. A nightmare, right?  

Moreover, you can obtain the ECQA (European Certification and Qualification) certificate.

Marta from Italy

"Although, I had previous experience with ongoing EU projects, which helped me finish the certification fast, I found the course useful because the material was focused on other EU programs and getting the insight into different approaches and concepts of EU project management gave me some fresh ideas for improvement of our current project management practices."
Miha from France

"This course was an incredible learning experience – one of the most useful courses I've been on, especially with the practical advice/steps. Excellent presentation of all material, professional and very reliable learning platform. Dr. Rozman is a really knowledgeable tutor who answered all queries as the course went along.
