The E-Manual is intended to be a practical tool, to be consulted online and downloaded in PDF format. The tool is aiming at providing a brief story of the European Union and the instruments (regarding seven-year financial programming) that enable Member States, and the stakeholders, to participate to joint and transversal actions specifically in the field of HEALTH.

The manual also offers a very practical guidance (methodologies and tools) to support the preparation of new project proposals (Chapter 2) and the effective and efficient management of approved projects (Chapter 3). The last Chapter  is addressed directly to project coordinators and as it provides a summary of the coordinator’s attributes and speific responsibilities that are  specific to this role, based on official EC documents/references.
