Providing direction for EU research coordinators
On 31 May 2010 in Brussels, the European Commission's Research Directorate-General hosted an 'Information Day' for research project coordinators hoping to hone their administrative skills.
Participation in EU Transport Research can be a rewarding experience, but the procedures and requirements are sometimes difficult to navigate.
Representatives of the Commission's Surface Transport Research service, including Acting Head of Unit H2 Frederic Sgarbi, walked research coordinators through the negotiation process, discussed financial and contractual issues and explained what tools are available to help them mount a successful research project.
