Abstract
Introduction/background: Obtaining funding for the implementation of a project entails the need to adapt the project to the requirements set by the European Union, as well as adequate competence on the part of the project team. This was particularly difficult during the Covid-19 pandemic, as even the most experienced and specialised teams could not fully anticipate the pandemic situation, which forced a number of changes in relation to the running of projects. These changes ranged from projects started before the outbreak of the pandemic to those that had already started during the pandemic. Given the authors' personal experience of working on EU projects during this period, there was very little information on how to implement changes in accordance with the health restrictions imposed by the Ministry of Health. At the time of the epidemic, even what appeared to be basic information had to be changed or clarified, however, to comply with the guidelines for implementing European projects. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, many organisations and actors implemented projects successfully. The question then is what factors influenced the successful implementation of these projects? Aim of the paper: The aim of the paper is to identify and define the conditions affecting the successful implementation of EU co-financed projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. Materials and methods: The study used a diagnostic survey method and desk research analysis, and the research tool used was an original interview questionnaire. Results and conclusions: The following were identified as the most important factors influencing the success of EU projects during the COVID-19 pandemic: the high level of knowledge of team members and their personality traits, the ability to transfer knowledge effectively, communication skills on the part of the project manager and team members, and the provision of appropriate tools and technology to carry out the work remotely.(original abstract)
