implementation of projects in intercultural and multidisciplinary teams, the
work of researchers and project managers involves a wide range of challenges.
IncoNet EaP is running a summer school for young researchers and project

the training is to learn more about project management processes in
international scientific projects particularly related to Horizon 2020 as
well as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to support mobility.
