31 participants from Cuba, Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Uruguay, Costa Rica, Peru, Nicaragua and Bolivia have been selected to follow the on-line coaching course on the FP7 ICT Work Programme and become Project Angels in their countries.
The Project Angels are specifically trained in the understanding of the ICT Programme and EU funding mechanisms. Once they are trained, they will act locally to help potential project participants with advice on how to participate in EU R&D programmes. They are supported by a team of expert Project Managers in Europe.
The free of charge on line course is one of the activities supported by the Pro-Ideal and Pro ideal Plus projects, funded by the European Commission to reinforce the ICT collaboration between Europe and Latin America.
