Are you completely new to EU research and innovation projects?

Or do you already have experience in Horizon 2020, but this will be your first Horizon Europe project?

This webinar series is for you! In this brand new webinar series, we will introduce the preparatory tasks and the initial first steps of your project implementation, from the moment the ESR and GAP Invitation Letter arrives to the first reporting obligation, the Continuous and Periodic Reporting.

Whether you are a partner in the project or a coordinator, this webinar will not only help you understand the processes, but we will share with you several useful tips, tricks, templates, and good practices that will help you manage your project efficiently.
The webinars focus on Cluster projects, so RIA, IA, and CSA actions in Pillar II. 

The Series consists of 3 parts, delivered in 3 days online. On each day, the webinar starts at 10.00AM CET, and the duration is 90+30 minutes each. 

  • Session I. (2 November 2022)  – Grant Agreement preparation

This section will guide you through step by step the labyrinth of the Grant Agreement preparation. We will discuss the main steps, tasks, responsibilities, and the pitfalls and difficulties that require special attention from the consortium. During the session, we will briefly go through what has changed in the GA and what the novelties are compared to H2020.  

  • Session II. (3 November 2022) – Kickstarting your Horizon Europe project 

Properly preparing and launching a Horizon Europe project is important not only to manage the project effectively but also to ensure that partners are aware of what is happening and what internal processes they need to contribute to. Everything starts with a good, practical Consortium Agreement. This session will introduce the main sections of the CA that need to be considered the most during the implementation of your projects, such as financial clauses, budget distribution, results, and access rights, including some tips. We will also introduce the best practices of a good management system which is supported by clear and practical tools that will enable you to efficiently deliver your project results. We will showcase tools that we crafted based on our extensive experience with managing projects e.g. internal technical and financial reports, risk management, IP management, and assessing the D&C activities of the partners. 

  • Session III. (4 November 2022) – Reporting obligations in Horizon Europe: Continuous and Periodic Reporting

In this session, we will introduce the main steps and the responsibilities of the partners and the coordinator in Continuous and Periodic Reporting. We will discuss when and how the reporting obligations should be completed and what are the best practices, internal templates, and tools for collecting data for Continuous and Periodic Reporting. During the session, we will also look at the Horizon Europe continuous reporting portal and introduce what's new and what’s changed. The session will also briefly introduce how to prepare the H2020 periodic technical and financial reports: what to and how to report, deviations, tips, and tools for effective internal management of your partners and their reporting obligations.
