Spring is around the corner and so are many H2020 upcoming deadlines. We are currently involved in 5+ proposals, all due by the end of March. Our team is quite busy, but we are optimistic and hope that hard work on the proposal development will pay off in a couple of months, once the evaluations are completed.
If all our proposals turn into newly funded H2020 projects, then the job of our project managers will undoubtedly become more challenging. That is why we try to closely follow the latest changes and regulations related to EU funding schemes, but H2020 and Horizon Europe in particular.
If you are in a similar situation and need a bit of preparation for your project management and reporting, don’t miss our upcoming course in Vienna. It will answer all of your questions related to the financial management and administration of Horizon 2020 projects and EC financial audits.

Can you give one or two examples of how to calculate additional remuneration?
In case you do not have any set rules within the organisation or on a national level, we recommend not to use additional remuneration scheme.
The way you deal with this scheme has to be defined in the organization’s internal policy and it should be applicable to all employees – even to those not working on a H2020 project. Paid for additional duties/tasks outside the job description.
Are you planning to provide open access to your scientific publications and research data within your project? Have you decided on the relevant platforms to use for this purpose?
You can share your research content on the OpenAIRE platform. Having started back in 2006 as the first EU initiative to “explore the development of a distributed infrastructure to enable enhanced interoperability of data and to establish a cohesive, pan-European infrastructure of Digital Repositories”, it has turned into a platform “promoting open scholarship and improving the discoverability and reusability of H2020 research publications and data”. Additionally, the platform connects research communities and content providers in scientific communication with the ultimate goal of facilitating the Open Science mandate in the EU.
