FIRST MEETING: February 2013

The first meeting in Brussels took place from February 4th to 5th 2013. It was a good experience for networking and getting to know other researchers in the working field of COMENIUS, too. The members of the EACEA informed all participants about special purposes when coordination a project, like contractual or financial management. Furthermore, auditors have spoken about the monitoring and auditing of the projects and their progress. This was very good to know for me so me and my project partners now know on what exactly to focus on when preparing the reports. The second day was about quality management within EU-funded projects and we formed workgroups to discuss about specific topics that are relevant for coordinators. My group discussed personal qualities a coordinator has to have in order to be a good coordinator. It was great participating such a good meeting! – Kathrin Uedl
