Horizon Europe Proposal Writing

A hands-on online training to develop and submit winning proposals under Horizon Europe

9:00 CET (1-day)
€ 690.-

This webinar will provide a practical insight and advanced tips for writing and submitting competitive proposals under the 2023-2024 calls of Horizon Europe. It is built on our direct, hands-on experience gained in developing and managing EU research and innovation projects over the past 20 years. The trainers of Europa Media are actual project managers, coordinators and financial administrators, currently running seven Horizon Europe projects – one as coordinator – while also preparing proposals to submit under the open and forthcoming calls of Horizon Europe. This course is designed based on this direct experience and is therefore 100% practice driven.

In this webinar, you will learn all about the features of winning Horizon Europe proposals and get equipped with the right tools to develop your proposal and polish it to perfection. The combination of practical presentations and hands-on tips and stories will introduce all the aspects you need to know, from putting together your concept not to developing each section and sub-section of your proposal and submitting a competitive application. We are sharing our first-hand experiences from the first submissions and evaluations. (See here our projects) 

Topics covered:

  • How to make sure your proposal fully matches the call text: call analysis, proposal design, consortium composition, cross-cutting issues
  • Key features of a successful Horizon Europe proposal – understand the elements that will make your proposal stand out amongst others
  • From proposal concept to full proposal: Proposal writing from the coordinator’s and partner’s perspective
  • How to compose text and fill in the application forms: Practical tips, examples and ready-to-use templates for Excellence, Impact and Implementation
  • Key steps and success criteria for winning Horizon Europe proposals: How to finalise and polish your proposal before submission
  • Evaluation of horizontal aspects: how to address gender, ethics, SSH and interdisciplinary aspects of your proposal
  • Special focus: Lump sum proposals – how to design the work plan and resources, and coordinate the detailed budget preparation in lump sum grants
