Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI) is organising a BESTPRAC Training School on "Administration of research funding: dealing with several funding sources (for non-university research organisations in inclusiveness targeted countries)", on September 27-29, 2016 in Vienna, Austria.

Research organisations from COST inclusiveness target countries have the possibility, but also the challenge to use several different funding sources for R&D and Innovation such as Structural Funds (INTERREG, ESF, EDRF, etc.) as well as Horizon 2020. Research administrators face several difficulties in this respect.

The BESTPRAC training school provides know-how and the possibility to discuss and exchange experiences. Furthermore, the training gives an input on the conditions of multi-project management with different funding sources from the points of view of project planning, implementation and reporting, audits, documentation requirements, etc.

The focus in this training school is on non-university research organisations.

Target group: Research administrators involved in the administration and management of several funding programmes from non-university research institutions from COST Inclusiveness Targeted Countries.
