The full submission cycle, from beneficiary registration to the final submission, including the assignment of “roles” (internal and external to the coordinator) and all the fundamental technicalities; The dynamics of the evaluation process and who are the evaluators’?


How to create a coherent “eligible” budget, to prevent rejection of costs before, during and after the implementation of the project or as a consequence of a financial officer check or an EC audit.
