Writing a Horizon 2020 grant proposal is a demanding task. Horizon 2020 projects are almost always consortium-based constituting the coordination challenge and dilemma.  The Horizon 2020 grant proposal must meet a set of criteria in order to be successfully evaluated, while competing in a highly competitive environment. This is exactly why we’ve put together the Horizon 2020 training.

The big question is always the same: Is there a right way to write such a successful Horizon 2020 proposal? If the answer is Yes – what is the formula to that?

In our Horizon 2020 training, we will share with you our two- decades worth of hands-on experience in EU funding. We will address all the required elements encompassing a Horizon 2020 grant proposal. Clearly, we will refer to all technical aspects (the boring stuff…), but we do not stop there.

The added value in our Horizon 2020 training

After lining up with traditional training stuff, we will go beyond and present the key ingredients to success: the spirit and the essence of these grants, the way the “machine” in Brussels works and how to address it. We will refer to the intangible concept of the required “Excellence” in these projects, while using our extensive experience in ERC as a reference. This will give you the sense of “ERC-grade excellence” that can only help your application in Horizon 2020. We will walk you through our unique and proven methodology of developing and coordinating Horizon 2020 project proposals, and more…

The one thing you need to remember when booking  your next training is that we focus only on one thing: the point of view of the reviewers. We know how they work, We know how they think. We know 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.
