Within the European University of Technology (EUt+) framework, Riga Technical University is organizing a Financial Management Staff week, which will take place in Riga, between April 17–21. The purpose of this program, is for the EUt+ staff members to exchange ideas and learn from each other to better improve their financial and project management skills.
The objectives of the week are to discuss different problem situations, and to work together to problem-solve such situations and to be better prepared and more efficient in the future. The targets of the program are three project areas, mobility projects, cooperation projects, and scientific projects. Therefore, we hope to host staff from EUt+ partners, that works within each of these projects.
