Essential tips for a successful European project implementation

Implementing an EU project is a time consuming and complicated process. Each organization knows that for the successful implementation of an EU project, a specific timetable needs to be kept to track all tasks and procedures during the project. But is a timetable all that it takes to successfully implement an EU project? Well, of course not and this article is aimed at providing the most essential tips for a successful European project implementation.

1. Program the tasks

It is of utmost importance for the person responsible to make sure that all the tasks on the list will be programed perfectly. That will save a lot of time and will open space for modifications and changes, if needed.

2. Update the timetable

The common timetable for all the partners (Gannt chart), needs to be updated constantly. That way all partners will be kept up to date with any changes and will have the time to act accordingly.

3. Be in constant communication with the coordinator

There is nothing more important than being in constant communication with the project’s coordinator. The exchange of information between the two will result to a much easier and smoother development of the project’s process and the implementation of the tasks.

4. Your tasks need to meet the deadlines

Deadlines need to be kept! Keeping the deadlines will help the project run without delays and/or problems, no matter how difficult the tasks might be.

5. Inform the coordinator/organization responsible for any changes in the tasks or deadlines

On the off chance that a deadline seems impossible to meet, the coordinator as well as all the partners need to be informed in time. An unmet deadline could have severe consequences if the rest of the consortium is unaware of it!

During business trips:

1. Be professional, punctual and polite

Business trips and meeting are a standard part of the project’s implementation. Professional, polite and punctual are the three qualities that must follow each partner during the meetings and communications with the rest of the consortium. And of course during the project’s entire lifespan.

Publicity needs to be a number one priority for the correct implementation of the project.
