horizon-2020-trainingThe first call for proposals under Horizon 2020, the EU’s new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, were launched in December 2013. The programme will run from 2014-2020 with a budget of €70 billion to fund research and innovation projects across Europe.

It is essential to be one step ahead of the game and prepare for the forthcoming challenges in the years running up to 2020. Fully understanding the new scheme of H2020 and its participation and administrative rules, as well as the differences with the previous FP7 programme is a key asset for organisations that wish to participate in H2020 projects.

We have been involved in more than 30 funded European projects in many technology areas since FP6 and have raised more than €110 million. We have also been very active and successful in the first calls of HORIZON 2020 across sectors, in particular energy, transport, smart cities, climate, circular economy and health.

With our first-hand experience, the feedback gathered and the lessons-learned based on these first calls, we have refined the content of our courses to deliver the most relevant and precise information and tips that will help you prepare and write winning proposals and manage your project efficiently.

They are tailored for participants from research organisations, SMEs, industry and public administrations who are either new to EU research programmes or who are experienced in EU projects under the previous Framework Programmes.
