Do you have what it takes to become a Horizon Europe project coordinator?

Starting as a project manager with a brand-new Horizon Europe project could not sound more thrilling! But, let's be honest, it can also be a little bit daunting, given the numerous challenges and responsibilities ahead.

In this blog post, our colleague, Carolina Rodríguez Balda, describes her first months as a project manager.

Stay tuned for more posts about the journey of a project manager and suggest the topics you would like us to explore further!

tip of the month Tips from our experts

Working together means delegating!

As a proposal coordinator, you must ask for help!

It is useful if you have an assigned so-called proposal writer who will ensure that all contributions come into place and the style is uniform at the end.

The partners must understand that their contribution, ideas, and concepts are vital for the project and that they are a part of the bigger picture because only with collaboration will the proposal succeed.

Apart from delegating, read what else our managing director and experienced project manager, Gabriella Lovasz, suggests regarding the first tasks and the first steps on your Horizon Europe project journey!

questions and answers Q&A from our participants

Is the Grant Agreement signed only by the coordinator and the Consortium Agreement by all the partners?

The Grant Agreement is signed by all the beneficiaries: the coordinator is signing it directly with the European Commission, and the partners are signing Accession Forms to be attached to the GA.

The Consortium Agreement is signed between all the partners in the consortium.

You can find the General Model Grant Agreement and its annotated version on the Funding & Tenders Portal under Guiding Documents for Horizon Europe. The most widely used template for the CA is the DESCA model, which you can find here.
