The topics covered by the workshop included: compliance and additional requirements of the H2020 rules in relation to standard accounting practices; types of expenditures by budget lines; eligible and ineligible expenditures; calculation of salaries and expenses of persons engaged in the projects; record-keeping during implementation and reporting in financial statements; different categories of project personnel; good management of travel, equipment and other expenses and indirect costs – rules, cost justification, required records, etc.

The workshop was attended by more than thirty representatives of universities and other organisations, who carefully followed the presentation and actively participated in the discussion by posing numerous questions and pointing to dilemmas. During the workshop, many of the concerns raised that are encountered in the financial and administrative management of the projects were eliminated. After the presentation, the participants also had a practical part (exercises), in order to get acquainted with the rules of financial management of H2020 projects on specific examples.
