University of Split was the host of the third research training session of the project. Six future trainers from Lebanon – three from the University of Balamand and three from the Antoine University – attended the training held by the staff from the University of Split.
Over the course of three days (23-25 October) guests from Lebanon had a chance to learn about the European programme Horizon 2020 in general; about funding opportunities within the programme; about the Participant Portal; application process, implementation – finance and reporting; and also about intellectual property in Horizon 2020, dissemination, communication, exploitation and RRI.
They also learned about the University of Split’s experience with Horizon 2020 through ongoing projects – HEIRRI and MiRoR in which the University is involved as a partner. In addition to this, future trainers were given numerous useful information and sources for further learning on designing and managing EU projects in general as well as on setting up assistance for research projects at universities.
The training session aimed to inform the participants of the possibilities of funding, the main steps to apply, implementation, financing and reporting in accordance to the type of assistance that staff from the University of Split provides to its researchers.
As all other sessions, this one was also recorded and will be a part of the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), which will be available on the project website in 2018. Besides fundamental training, the contents give the opportunity for further individual training and learning from available sources.
