Testimonial on the Master program

The International Master in European Project Planning and Management offers a valid occasion to access main relevant information regarding some of the most challenging European Funding Programmes. The group of trainers was quite variagated in terms of professional and social skills. Their direct involvement within small/medium/large organizations working on European projects was an asset. Moreover, the fact that some trainers work in the European Institutions is a relevant point of strength. Practical activities were another important element. These activities, together with the project work were the main occasion to dive into the real situations faced by every project manager. Last but not least, the internship is one of the reasons why I think this Master programme is a very good opportunity.

Testimonial on the Internship

In January 2019 I had the chance to start my internship at the Martin Luther University in Halle (Saale), at the Institute of Geosciences and Geography – Department of Sustainable Landscape Development. When I arrived, even though it was cold and not at all sunny, the impact was positive. Indeed, the city of Halle (Saale) is not so big but still active and cosy. I do like the fact that there are several green areas, included a quite extended wood not so far away from the city centre.
My supervisor and my colleagues have offered me their support since the beginning and I had the chance to be actively involved in their activities immediately. My main task for the first 2 months has been to support one of my colleagues in writing a project proposal under the programme Horizon2020, pillar 3 (Societal Challenge 5). The call included not only European partners but even Partners from Latin America. This experience gave me the opportunity to know more in depth all the issues related to the management of European projects.
