This is the 3rd, final part of the series of four 90-minute-long webinars to make sure your Horizon Europe proposal is excellent. By explaining certain financial rules and introducing some basic calculation methods, we will help you putting together a budget that will be useful also when your project gets funded. 

The webinar will help you to understand all basic financial rules, develop a balanced staff effort distribution, plan budget for all key activities – calculate the average weighted PM rate, travel, equipment, subcontracting, etc. costs.  

Practical examples and exercises will put the rules into practice. 

Topics of the webinar: 

  • Proposal budget vs project spending 

  • Estimating costs: Personnel, travel, subcontracting and other direct costs 

  • Coordinators vs partners in budget planning 

  • Resource planning and budgeting tools 

  • Examples of budgeting process in small/medium vs large-scale projects 

  • Lump-sum budgets 

Why this webinar?  

Because we have submitted already and pre-evaluated several Horizon Europe proposals. Under Horizon 2020, we have been involved successfully in over 30 projects, coordinating six of them. This event, as always, has been designed based on our direct hands-on experience with EU research and innovation proposals and is therefore 100% practice-driven.   

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar series is primarily for those applicants who are working already on a Horizon Europe proposal, have already concepts in their heads. Researchers, grant managers, research advisers, grant office colleagues can all benefits from the series if they already target a specific topic with a collaborative project.
