Did your last project proposal fail? You have more projects, but you are always a partner and you want to coordinate now? Do you only need more practice? This course is for you then. Our last year ended with a 30% success rate in Horizon 2020. Not bad, right? We are sharing our direct experience with successful and unsuccessful proposals under the 2014-2018 calls and giving all the practical knowledge we have on proposal writing through a set of exercises focusing on a real H2020 call topic. The scope of the course is to cover in details the main sections of the proposal, focusing on the problematic parts. Join us and get a deeper insight into developing competitive H2020 proposals. Why participate in the "Horizon 2020 Proposal Writing Workshop" course? Because we know how to put together a winning project, but also know how to transfer this knowledge efficiently to you. Become better skilled by squeezing all information from successful proposal writers they may have. See our training and project references 1. Trainers are actual Project Managers and Proposal Writers This course is built on our direct experience gained over the past 17 years from developing and submitting proposals and implementing projects under the EU's Research Framework Programmes. The trainers of Europa Media are actual project managers, coordinators and financial administrators of EU-funded research and innovation projects. They are currently involved in more than 15 successful ongoing Horizon 2020 projects as project coordinator, work package or task leader, and are on a daily basis conceiving and developing their own project proposals under the open and forthcoming H2020 calls. This course is designed based on this direct experience and is therefore 100% practice-driven. 2. Exercises from concept development till the budget Experience Europa Media's well-known "learning-by-doing" approach – hear only one introductory presentation introducing the rules of the game with examples, then practice, practice and practice - during the practical and interactive workshops. Develop a project proposal in response to a work programme topic (“call”). As a start: After going through a simple exercise, you will be encouraged to pursue a new way of thinking - a method to ensure that you get started in the right way. You will then further develop your proposal concept step-by-step: defining sound objectives, designing an effective work plan with work packages, creating a Gantt chart and PERT diagram, defining an ideal consortium, and putting together a realistic budget. Impact and Exploitation workshop: You will draft the Expected Impact section and identify the best scenario for exploitation and IP strategy. Dissemination and Communication workshop: Participants will define the relevant target groups and the most appropriate dissemination and communication tools, channels and strategies for disseminating and communicating the results of the project with a view to maximizing its impact. Is this training for me? This course targets all those who have been competitively participating in H2020 projects as well as those who aim to participate in Horizon 2020/Horizon Europe and want to develop their proposal writing skills through practice.
