The EU has developed several financial instruments and funding programmes to support areas such as regional and urban development, employment and social inclusion, research and innovation. The EU funding is monitored and allocated according to strict rules and can be managed in partnership with national and regional authorities or directly by the EU.
In order to apply for EU funds, a broad understanding of the underlying EU financial, legal and policy framework is prerequisite. EU funding opportunities, eligibility criteria and processes are also essential. This course will dive deeper into the EU funding, by providing attendees with more knowledge about the available EU funding programmes, how to apply for them, how to match their project proposals with the EU strategic goals and ultimately, how to manage a EU-funded project.
The course has been developed by Alexandra Covrig, Senior Project Manager at Airport Regions Council. Alexandra leads the development and implementation of EU-funded projects. She supports projects on key areas, such as economic growth, territorial branding, economic impact, aviation noise and emissions, training and employment in airport regions, congestion and airport capacity, land use and airport expansion, intermodality, surface access, connectivity, decarbonisation of airport areas. Alexandra holds a joint Master’s degree in Communication Science and European Studies. She also received specialised training from the College of Europe in EU project management.
