Special attention is paid to the following issues:

Europlan relies on the valuable expertise of top experts in business development, management, collaboration, and legal and financial matters. Our trainers have first-hand experience in the design, implementation and evaluation of EU RDI projects. One of the ultimate highlights of this training course is a ‘project surgery’ where the participants can ask specific questions about their ideas and project proposals during bilateral consultations with the experts of Europlan.

Ohridski” (as part of the RegPot project), Serbia (as part of the BRIDGE project – Bridging the gap between the capacities of local SMEs and innovative market demands for practical competences in the context of Serbia’s integration in the EU) and Croatia (upon Europlan’s own initiative).
