European Project Office - EUPro

EUPro offers professional project management services and helps you with the implementation of your EU project (mainly Horizon 2020). This takes the administrative load off you and you can concentrate more on your research work.


Project implementation

For an EU project to run successfully, efficient project management is essential. At HHU, third party-funded projects are implemented in close cooperation between the project manager, the EU project management team and the Third-party Funding Department.
