Brussels, 29 Apr 2004

EARTO, the European association of research and technology organisations, together with Hyperion consulting, is organising a series of three training course for research managers, to take place on 1, 2 and 3 June in Brussels, Belgium.

The 1 June course will cover how to write a competitive proposal for the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), providing tips on how to collect information, select strategic partners and avoid duplication in proposal writing.

The next course, on 2 June, will outline how to negotiate, manage and administer an EU research contract under FP5 and FP6, and is based on the speaker's experiences of involvement in over 50 EU research projects.

The final training course, on 3 June, will describe how to write technology implementation plans (FP5) and exploitation and use plans (FP6), also known as eTIPs. This course describes the background and layout of the eTIP, and provides practical advice on the information sources and method of writing.

All three courses are relevant to research managers and advisors responsible for the preparation of FP6 proposals.
