Pathfinder (FET-Open) is essentially a Horizon 2020 collaborative project, but with unique attributes. Therefore, it is important to first become highly knowledged about Horizon 2020. This can be done through our dedicated training: How to write a competitive Horizon 2020 project proposal. During our FET-open training, we cover all that is unique about this grant proposal, and everything you need to know to apply.

The added value in our FET-open training

In this customized training we will discuss the basics of Pathfinder (FET-Open), how Pathfinder (FET-Open) is different compared to other Horizon 2020 funding schemes, what is expected from a Pathfinder (FET-Open) project, and how to write a competitive Pathfinder (FET-Open) proposal.

The topics include:

  • Horizon 2020 overview
  • What is FET Open and how is it unique?
  • What is FET Open looking for? – The Gatekeepers
  • How “Open” is FET Open?
  • How to prepare a winning FET Open proposal?

The one thing you need to remember when booking  your next training is that we focus only on the point of view of the reviewers. We know how they work, how they think and what they are looking for. We know what you should avoid and what you should focus on. We are here to share all of that with you.

Target audience: Researchers from academia or industry who wish to apply for Pathfinder (FET-Open); Professionals from SMEs and entrepreneurs who wish to apply for Pathfinder (FET-Open).

Our training sessions are on-site booked by our institutional clients. We bring our experts to you.

When should you schedule the training?

We recommend to give considerable time (typically 3-6 months before deadline) for training before researchers must start to draft their proposals.
