EU funding is complex, and difficult to grasp for beginners. If you are in an organization with embedded knowledge on Horizon 2020 you can get good training on the job. However if you don’t have access to a network of people who support you, getting training is a good possibility to learn about writing proposals. The training course we offer can be part of a Summer School, a PhD programme, a company or institute training, or an offer by an EU contact point.
Who is this training for:
- For beginners in Horizon 2020, who want to apply for funding.
- For researchers, looking to improve their network of project partners.
- For project leaders, wanting to increase their project funding.
What is the training about:
- How does Horizon 2020 and EU funding work in practice?
- How can I find partners?
- How to build a consortium?
- How can I write an excellent proposal?
- Tips and “need to know” for EU funding?
Why should you attend a training session?
- Interactive training is different from reading a book.
- The training can be tailored to the participants.
- Interactive exercises are part of the training.
- You’ll get a copy of the book “How to write effective EU proposals”.
- Knowledge on how to apply for Horizon 2020.
- Understand EU calls and when to apply (and when NOT to apply).
- Understanding of the principles of excellent proposals.
- Be able to evaluate calls and partner requests.
- Write a one page proposal template and partnership template.
- Critically evaluate a consortium and match partners with call requirements.
The Horizon 2020 training course is special because we give every participant a copy of the book “How to write effective EU proposals”. This allows participants to quickly reference the most important training contents.
