Meeting topic: 

The event wants to increase the project management culture within the framework of projects and programs funded by the European Union.
Since years the European Union directs and finances research and innovation initiatives in Europe, through both direct founds and indirect ones (structural), thanks to the mediation of the Member States and/or Regions, in order to support the Europe 2020 strategy (smart, sustainable and inclusive). This means starting various programs and launching various Call for proposals and/or the Call for tenders covering all sectorial areas: research, agriculture, security, energy, transport, information technology, tele-communications, health, biology and more.

Knowing the opportunities of these programs, applying to calls for proposals and, in case of selection, implementing what proposed, represents a real challenge both for potential beneficiaries (SMEs, public bodies, non-profit organization, etc.) and Project Managers. The projects financed directly by the EU, in most cases, ask for European partnership, involving all stakeholders’ representatives. The project are often multidisciplinary, innovative, and realize effective value for Europe's growth. An high-level expertise is therefore a must.
The common thread of the event will be the PM best practices in EU environment, both regarding applying and implementing activities on funded projects.

The event will also introduce the joint initiative EuroPM -on Project Management best practices- leaded by the three Italian PMI Chapters (Northern, Central, Southern - collectively referred to as Chapters Italy) in partnership with Eurosportello Confersercenti member EEN (Enterprise Europe Network).

A final round table, open to topics proposed by the participants, will close the event.
