Getting Ready for Horizon Europe – The Starter Kit

This course is for researchers and academic staff,
who are not familiar with the EU funding programme Horizon Europe – YET !

After this course you will have a clear idea of what Horizon Europe is about
and what you need to prepare an excellent research proposal.

Course topics

New Features and Characteristics of Horizon Europe
Learn about the political background of the research funding programme and new features such as impact pathways and missions; understand the role and responsibilities of a Horizon Europe coordinator.

The Excellent Project Proposal
Horizon Europe is all about excellence – but what does the Commission expect from excellent proposals? Learn the dos and don’ts from the perspective of an evaluator and learn how to elevate your scores.

The Secret Is in the Call Text
The simple truth:a prerequisite of a successful proposal is a clear understanding of the European Commission’s expectations. These are stipulated in the call text and in the work programme. Learn how to analyse and understand these important documents.

Create a Research Design That Scores High
Most Horizon Europe-funded research (mainly pillar 2) must be organised within a tight and predefined framework. Learn how to bring this in accordance with your research idea and create the structure for your project.
