HORIZONT3000 for you

Our service

HORIZONT3000 offers a variety of services to organisations and sponsors. As part of our technical assistance programme for development cooperation, we provide technical assistance on behalf of other Austrian organisations at their partners’. To foundations, we offer to coordinate and support specific programmes and projects. Those who are interested in development cooperation are welcome to attend some of the seminar modules of our preparatory training course. Our experienced staff also holds lectures, workshops and courses for different institutions and events in Vienna.


What we achieve with foundations

Project services for foundations

Foundations are increasingly becoming important partners in the struggle against poverty, exploitation, and environmental destruction in the countries of the Global South. For this reason, we’ve been collaborating with Crossing Border and Medicor Foundation Liechtenstein for many years. Use our Project Map (in German) to see the Projects.

We work with medium-term country strategies and concentrate our efforts on three Sectors: Rural Development – Natural Resource Management, Civil Society and Human Rights, Education. All of our projects are evaluated according to their relevance to the Cross-Cutting Issues environment, gender, and HIV/AIDS. We also put great emphasis on Preventing Climate Change.

Our services to foundations:

  • Professional assessment and project placement
  • Support to foundation-relevant projects by providing qualified technical advisors
  • Rigid success and financial monitoring
  • Project documentation, donor management, attendance to project visits

Seminars and workshops

In times of globalisation, there is a growing pressure to remain competent, especially on people who work in development cooperation, who need to be able to meet ever more and increasingly important requirements.

Our seminar programme offers comprehensive information on the multifaceted topics of development cooperation. Tailored to the needs of technical advisors that are going to be sent abroad, both national and international develop cooperation professionals attend our seminars and workshops. In these courses, we convey practically relevant competencies and knowledge that will allow the students to rise to the current challenges and those further down the road.

The seminar facilitators all have practical experience in the field of development cooperation and make the training offered by HORIZONT3000 a unique offer on the market.

Thank you for your interest in our workshops and seminars and have fun exploring our broad range of courses (in German). If you have any questions or comments, please send us an e-mail to training@horizont3000.at
