During this proposal writing webinar, practical tips and tools for submitting competitive proposals under the first calls of  Horizon Europe will be presented.

Are you completely new to proposal writing under the EU research and innovation programmes? 

Don't worry, all participants will have the opportunity to prepare and get ready well in advance with our brand-new "Webinar 0".  This introductory session, in eLearning format, will let you refresh your knowledge or identify some basic information on Horizon Europe proposal development if you are a newbie in this field.

Presentations will be completed by online games and polls, which will allow the participants to explore the key processes and steps in proposal preparation in a fun and engaging way.

The afternoons will be dedicated to practicing. The eLearning portal will give the possibility to the participants to test their knowledge, practice the skills in different games, quizzes and online exercises. Presenters will be available in live Q&A sessions in the afternoon.

Who we are  

Europa Media is a unique company supporting public and private organisations to develop successful project proposals and effectively manage projects under the EU's research and innovation programmes since FP5. Over the past 20 years, our team has been directly involved in writing successful proposals and coordinating and managing projects under different EU programmes. Under Horizon 2020, we have been involved in over 30 projects as coordinators and partners. Our workshops and seminars are designed based on this direct experience we have from our own proposals and projects - we discuss and reflect on a lot of specific problems during these events. They are therefore quite hands-on with real-life examples and stories. This practical approach has attracted over 10,000 participants from all over the world in the past 15 years.
