KORANET Summer School on European-Korean Cooperation in Environmental and Social Sciences

From first project ideas to a successful implementation of projects in intercultural and multidisciplinary teams, the work of researchers and project managers includes a wide range of challenges. KORANET offers a Summer School for young researchers and project managers from Korea and Europe to learn more about all steps of project management processes in international scientific projects.

International Project Management – from Theory to Practice

Course aim

The KORANET Summer School aims to offer answers to the following questions:  


  • Where to get funding?
  • How to prepare successful project proposals?
  • How to manage projects with international research teams?

The main objectives are to provide the participants an insight into:

  • the aims, structure and participation rules of research programmes open for Korean-European research cooperation (and in particular in the 7th European Framework Programme/Horizon 2020);
  • the policy objectives, trends and instruments of international RTDI cooperation;
  • how Project Cycle Management works and how a logical framework can be applied;
  • how a project should be designed;
  • how projects are planned and managed in financial terms;
  • how project proposals are evaluated;
  • project management processes and tools (including stakeholder analysis, relational management, risk and crisis management,
  • project cultures, application of digital/social media, quality assurance, monitoring and controlling etc.);
  • dissemination and capitalisation of results including ethical issues;
  • how to deal with intercultural issues.
