Spanish term or phrase: formulación de proyectos vs. creación de proyectos
En el programa de un curso de la carrera de kinesiología, "Administración en salud", sección Contenido:

FORMULACIÓN Y EVALUACIÓN DE PROYECTOS = PROJECT DESIGN AND APPRAISAL

- Creación de proyectos = ???

- Beneficios y costos de los proyectos = Project Costs and Benefits

- Fuentes de financiamiento en salud = Health Funding Sources

¿CUÁL ES LA DIFERENCIA ENTRE FORMULACIÓN Y CREACIÓN EN ESTE CONTEXTO?

¡Gracias!

project development vs. preparation
Explanation:
My instinct is that "formulación" is more strategic, i.e. refers to crafting/shaping/designing the project, while "creación" is more nuts-and-bolts -- preparing/launching.

That said, it's also possible that this is just a case of elegant variation, since the latter term appears to be a subheading of the heading containing the former.

"drafting" = the conceptual phase and "constructing" = the actual creation of the project

I wouldn't go as far as "implementation" but maybe something like "setting up" for "creación"

preparation and development of projects


Explanation:
Para mí la secuencia serïa:

creación de proyectos = development of projects, la primera etapa en que se esboza el projecto en términos generales.

formulación de proyectos = preparation of projects, una etapa posterior en que se redacta el proyecto con todos sus detalles.

Pero no creo que exista ningún criterio firme establecido.
