In 2007, a small group of people took the initiative to establish an EU Project Managers Association in The Netherlands (EUPMAN). The goal of EUPMAN is to bring together all EU-project managers in the Netherlands and to offer a forum for the exchange of information and experiences in relation to the coordination and management of EU-projects. Our aim is to share best practices and to offer support for project managers that are new in the field.

Ten years later, EUPMAN has over 500 members from academia, research organisations and industry. Our members are active in the day-to-day management of EU-projects, be it from the Framework Programmes (FP7/H2020) or other EU-funded research. In our Association different levels of experience in EU project management are represented. We particularly encourage those who are new to EU project management to make use of the knowledge and expertise of the EUPMAN platform.

Individuals who are involved in EU project management and other grant support are encouraged to join EUPMAN and to contribute to discussions and exchange of expertise.

This website has a public domain, to inform non-members about the activities of EUPMAN, and a private domain, only accessible for members, which has a document repository with useful information for EU-project managers and an archive containing all issues, information and discussions that passed via our EUPMAN e-mail discussion list.
