EU funding has become increasingly important for a wide range of organisations and institutions operating in the European Union (EU). It can be safely argued that the vast majority of EU based organisations are currently involved or will be involved in projects and initiatives that are funded by EU; projects related to mobilities funded by Erasmus+ programme, large scaled research projects funded by H2020 or projects related to policy and/or dissemination/exploitation, such as Life+, among others. Therefore, there is an increasing need for individuals and organisations alike to acquire in depth understanding of the principles and mechanisms related to EU funding as well as the skills and competences required to transform an innovative concept to a commercial product and service with the financial assistance of EU funds. SEEU is a masterclass course which can be hugely beneficial for organisations and institutions wishing to enhance human capital and invest in developing and integrating EU funding strategy in the overall business development strategy.
