How to Write a Competitive Proposal for Horizon 2020

The aim of this half-day course is to train researchers, research managers and research support services in writing professional and competitive proposals for the Horizon 2020. The course describes the relevance of Horizon 2020 to EU policies, the common problems in proposal writing and the success criteria for proposals. The course provides tips on how to collect information, how to select strategic partners and how to avoid duplication in proposal writing. The final section describes a strategy for proposal writing.

How to Write the Impact of an Horizon 2020 Proposal

The aim of this course is the train researchers how to sell their project ideas in the abstract and the impact. The abstract is used to introduce the proposed concept to the evaluator. It is also used by the Project Officer to select the evaluators and in the panel meeting to select the successful projects. Impact has become one of the key evaluation criteria in European research proposals. Researchers have difficulty in understanding the concept of 'Impact' and in explaining the potential impact of their proposals.
The course is designed to address these two issues.
