The CEI offers 3 options to find out how to access the EU funding programmes:


  • The European Proposal Writing course (certificate awarded by the University of Barcelona) is aimed at entrepreneurs, company managers, public agency staff and students interested in achieving a high degree of specialization in writing European project proposals in the area of innovation. The start day of the Course is October 6th. Discounted course fees for Spanish companies through FUNDAE.


  • Technician: European Proposal Writing (225-hour course, with CEI International Affairs Certificate).


  • European innovation funding programmes (75-hour course, with CEI International Affairs Certificate).



Given the variety of European funds, programmes and initiatives, the purpose of these courses is to provide organizations with the necessary training for their internal staff to gain the specialization and technical capacity needed to formulate and manage EU-funded projects.


Horizon Europe, the European research and innovation programme, is an excellent source of funding for universities, research centres, companies and SMEs. Organizations seeking to apply for funding must anticipate and familiarize themselves with the new Horizon Europe requirements and priorities to successfully compete against the large number of submitted proposals.



The European Proposal courses provide participants with:


  • Tuition provided by qualified professionals: with expert guidance, you will be able to request support for your European Project.


  • Networking opportunities: To ensure quality networking opportunities, the courses have a maximum number of 30 participants. You will not only connect with and benefiting from the experiences of companies and their projects but will also understand what makes them successful.

  • Encourage the generation of fundable ideas: The course will focus on the new Horizon Europe priorities. We will work on and analyse the feasibility of project ideas generated by the participants and highlight winning projects and success stories.
  • Identify the key factors for a winning proposal: We will analyse the aspects that determine the success of a highly competitive project, including: a European focus, an innovative nature, partnerships, financial aspects, etc. We will work on tips for success and practical advice.
  • Immediate practical application: Participants will be able to immediately apply what they learn at their jobs.



Who is it for?


Students, entrepreneurs, researchers and officers at public and private organizations who work in the area of innovation.






The CEI programs for the next academic year will be adapted to the blended or online modality as a consequence of the exceptional circumstances derived from the global pandemic. This means that, if the situation requires it, our programs can take place virtually, without losing the personalized and professional character that characterizes our training offer.

Furthermore, the CEI assumes that COVID19 has generated a global crisis, health, economic and diplomatic, that will deeply transform our societies. For this reason, in all our courses, the impact of COVID19 will be addressed in the different areas of analysis to facilitate students' understanding of the consequences of this crisis and the measures being adopted to face it.
