The added value of this course
- Excellence, Impact & Implementation. To elevate applications, we will refer to the three sections that each Horizon Europe collaborative project proposals must follow: Excellence, Impact & Implementation (including Budget). We will thoroughly discuss how to approach these successfully using the extensive experience we’ve acquired over the past 2 decades.
- The “ERC Standard”. The course will also implement unique methods and practices gained from our extensive experience with the prestigious and highly competitive ERC grant. Adding the “ERC standard” (where the novelty and groundbreaking bar is set much higher) to your proposal writing toolbox will enable you to aim higher in all research and proposal dimensions.
- Point of view of the reviewers. Our course’s content was developed while keeping in mind the most important grant writing aspect – the point of view of the reviewers. Since we know what reviewers are looking for, we know exactly what researchers should focus on and what they should avoid.
