European Project Management
The European Commission’s fund programs, which aim to support education, training, youth, and sport in Europe, are open for applications based on projects that aim to apply for these funds, such as KA1 (Key Actions 1) – Learning mobility of individuals and KA2 (Key Actions 2) – Co-operation among organizations.
Based on this, we have some daily responsibilities in the European Project Management department, such as:
1. Planning and collaborating projects with other team members;
2. Collaborating with external partners for project development and implementation;
3. Making project proposals;
4. You will make reviews of previous proposals;
5. Suggestions as to how to improve each proposal;
6. Searching for partner schools and organizations by sending emails and requests on social media;
7. Sending and replying to company emails and their social media accounts;
8. Working on Extramus accreditation documents;
9. Tracking project deadlines
The European Commission funds programs, which aim to support education, training, youth, and sport in Europe, are open according to some programs such as a:
- KA1 (Key Action 1) – Mobility of individuals for learning
- KA2 (Key Action 2) – Cooperation between organizations, based on projects aiming to apply for these funds.
- KA3 (Key Action 3) – Aid in policy development and collaboration
These applications necessitate the handling and management of some complex activities required for the production, elaboration, and presentation of European projects, funding proposals addressed to the European Union in response to the daily calls for proposals in relation to the aforementioned programs.
As a result, the European Project Manager is required as the foundation for the management of all processes ranging from the idea of the project to its creation, and the organization of tasks to meet the deadlines for submitting proposals to the European Commission. Because of this the projects are complex and the experience of other agents is critical, the project manager contacts partners to collaborate and organize the management of tasks between them to meet objectives, based on their capabilities and compatibility with the project. Accordingly, for these contacts, online searches are conducted in social networks such as Facebook, as well as participation in groups of activities for similar purposes in these same networks. Emails and messages are sent to these institutions, and the points of contact are reviewed daily for response to messages received.
In conclusion, controlling deadlines are critical, and synchronization and coordination between all parties involved are required. As such, a project manager defines deadlines for the completion of processes and creates the necessary documentation for this purpose. From the start of the application to the end, you will verify the commission documents to ensure that the requirements are met. The same person creates and develops proposals, revising them and presenting suggestions for document improvement.
