The Master Class is held by professionals with 20+ years of experience in the design, implementation and management of large collaborative projects funded by the EU Programmes.  The approach is practical and hands-on: each module and topic is enriched by examples of real proposals and projects.  Trainers will make reference to real-life cases, providing concrete examples of how to write winning proposals, how to anticipate operational problems and troubleshooting at implementation.
