From the 19th to the 23rd March 2018, three staff members from Antonine University, Lebanon, participated in a practical placement session at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis.
The aim of the 4-day practical placement was to transfer skills and expertise in project design and management to selected trainers from a HEI Partner Country. The programme was adapted to the learning needs of Antonine University and focused in particular on the design and the management of Erasmus + Capacity Building project and H2020 project proposals.
The practical activities, organized by the staff of the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, aimed to inform the participants of the possibilities of funding and the different project management tools and strategies for the implementation, financing and reporting of European projects. The trainees and future trainers took part in several practical exercises such as “spot the errors” on above-mentioned European programmes.
During the session, the staff members from the Antonine University had also the opportunity to learn more about the organization of the UNS development service and research department and also to meet and exchange with a MSCA beneficiary researcher.
