Lump sum proposals and projects in Horizon Europe

9:00 CEST (4 hours)
€ 690.-

Lump sum funding is increasingly used in Horizon Europe to make the programme simpler by removing the need to report actual costs and reduce the financial error rate. It is meant to simplify the funding mechanism while all the main features of the research funding stay the same.  

However, the details are always important; simplification comes at a price, and these are the specific extra tasks and rules that everyone applying for lump sum funding should be aware of – both when writing a proposal and implementing a project. 

If you want to dig into the details of writing and managing a lump sum project, our trainers Ömer and Krisztina will help you out with pro tips and tricks on how to succeed at it based on their own experience with lump sum grants. 


Over half a day, the course will cover:  

  • Main features of lump sum funding 

  • How to define the lump sum in your proposal and lump sum budget table tips to define sufficient units for your costs 

  • Distribution and number of work packages in your proposal and how it is linked to the payment system of lump sum projects 

  • Evaluation of the lump sum proposals 

  • Grant preparation of your lump sum projects – specific articles in your Grant Agreement and tips to specify lump sum features in your Consortium Agreement 

  • Changes in your lump sum project implementation – how to amend your lump sum grant?  

  • How to report your lump sum project, with a detailed introduction to periodic reporting.  

  • How to deal with partially completed work packages and how to report deviations of your lump sum projects 

  • Keeping records – what you need and don’t need to keep 

  • Payment schedule – Partial payment
