AN INTERDISCIPLINARY THINK TANK FOR CREATIVE SCIENCE

The Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences – MedILS, in Split, Croatia, is envisioned as an international centre of excellence for molecular biology. It is located in a park on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Croatian Adriatic coast.  MedILS offers a unique setting for high-quality workshops and conferences, with multiple fully equipped lecture rooms and halls.


Guests are accommodated in comfortable rooms with air-conditioning, private bathrooms, telephone, and high-speed internet. Three meals per day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and coffee breaks with snacks can be organized on site.


Group sessions can also be held outside in the Institute’s park where benches, desks, and wireless Internet access are available. The location enables a number of possibilities for after-work leisure activities, including swimming at nearby beaches, running and hiking in the forests of Marjan state park, or playing basketball at the Institute’s private court. The city of Split with its picturesque old town offers plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops for social activities and can be reached in 20 minutes by foot, or in five minutes by bus or car.

Efficient & Effective Project Management for EU funded Projects

Efficient & Effective Project Management for EU funded Projects

The ‘Efficient & effective Project Management for EU funded projects’ (PMEU) is a masterclass course that equips all those involved in the management/coordination as well as all those responsible for the technical and financial progress on behalf of their institutions with the required knowledge and expertise in dealing in an efficient & effective manner with the management of EU funded projects. This course is a masterclass course delivered by experts in the area of EC funded projects and it has been designed in an easy-to-follow manner, irrespective of the experience of the delegates in the specific field of study. The course will offer substantial help and benefit to a wide range of individuals, such as project managers, project coordinators, research officers, legal representatives (i.e. school principals, directors) as well as those working in the International Relations Office of Universities, to deal with the ever-demanding needs of reporting and monitoring of EC funded projects.  The course covers all important areas of project management, such as obligations related to reporting and visibility of EC funded projects. Moreover, the course offers a comprehensive overview on the various forms of audits as well as tools for efficient & effective monitoring & evaluation.  The delegates are benefited from a detailed review and analysis of financial risks and the mitigation measures for dealing with these risks. Finally, the delegates will be offered a ‘hands-on’ experience with two unique case studies which will highlight the amount of work needed during periodic (i.e. annual) reviews and the evaluation of the project during these reviews by EC
