The Horizon Europe Academy covers the full life cycle of a research and innovation project. Starting from the conceptual phase to financial audits.  
The Academy consists of 2 parts in 4 days. You can attend the whole Academy or choose the preferred part(s) separately. 


The Academy starts with a 2-day webinar which will provide a complete insight into writing and submitting competitive proposals in response to open calls in Horizon Europe. The combination of practical presentations and hands-on online exercises will introduce all aspects that you need to know, from identifying the right call for your project idea to developing and submitting a competitive proposal. We share first-hand experiences from the first submissions
See more on the Proposal Writing webinar here. 


After reviewing the proposal writing, we will dedicate two days to discussing the project management novelties and financial reporting rules of Horizon Europe projects. We show real examples and share the calculation methods.  How to figure out what is eligible and what is not, and how does that help you to develop your budget or report your costs? These will ease your project management journey while preparing your periodic technical and financial reports for the EC. 

In this webinar, presentations will be completed with practical tips, personal experiences, and good and bad practices, which will allow the participants to fully understand the key processes and steps in the proposal preparation from a practitioner’s perspective. Hands-on workshops will complement presentations, giving participants the opportunity to fully experience key steps in proposal writing or do the personnel cost reporting. See more on the Project Management and Financial Rules & Reporting webinar here.

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.
