Training and Preparation of Professionals

Training professionals for analytical and prognostic studies, especially technology foresight and technology assessment  

This agenda is the responsibility of the Technology Centre’s Department of Strategic Studies.

Specialised training for proposal preparation and FP project management

The TC organises specialised trainings and courses oriented at the entire life-cycle of FP projects – from the identification of a suitable programme and preparation of a project, individual phases of investigation to the handling of project results and IPR issues. The courses combine blocks of lectures with practical exercises. Topics are chosen according to specific interests and requirements of participants. Further information can be found here.

Publication of training and information materials about FP

The TC prepares professional brochures that introduce the matter of FP and international cooperation in R&D in an accessible manner. It also publishes the ECHO magazine, which specialises in the happenings in the European Research Area (ERA). On top of that, the TC operates a specialised website that provides complex information about current issues concerning all aspects of the FP and that is used for publishing presentations from informational events organised in connection with the FP. Up-to-date information is published in the electronic Newsletter of FP7; you can subscribe to the newsletter here.
