Join the upcoming innovation event "FT Innovation Dialogue 5 - The Change Challenge" held in London, United Kingdom by Financial Times Live. 

Discover how innovation leaders are implementing change in their companies to reduce red-tape and to cultivate a more inclusive workplace environment - one in which new ideas can flower, and through which innovation can easily flow.

Ideas, the raw material of innovation, are everywhere. The danger is that we end up looking in the same places for them all the time. Good ideas aren’t exclusive to the C-suite. Those further down the ranks are often closer to the technology and cultural shifts that are taking place, and can provide great insights as well.

But workforces, like the management that governs them, can be blighted by homogeny: everyone is just like everyone else. In the sphere of ideas and creativity, homogeny begets more of the same. More of the same is an enemy of innovation. Bureaucracy (ideas get stuck) and hierarchy (ideas don’t get seen) are enemies of innovation.

How can innovation leaders implement structural change to reduce red-tape, make decision-making more horizontal and cultivate a more inclusive workplace environment - one in which new ideas can flower, and through which innovation can easily flow. What are the technologies that might help facilitate this? And, crucially, how can the power at the center get out of the way of the exciting new ideas happening at the edge?

This brand-new training course will provide a complete insight to writing and submitting competitive proposals in response to the last calls of Horizon 2020, and this time only, we also included an intensive one-day training on the set-up of a competitive ITN (Innovative Training Network) proposal.

The combination of practical presentations and hands-on workshops 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.

Join Europa Media’s Horizon 2020 Proposal Writing Academy + one-day intensive Marie Skłodowska-Curie (ITN/ETN) proposal writing and obtain the essential skills for writing a competitive proposal under Horizon 2020 and ITN. After going through a simple exercise, you will be encouraged to pursue a new way of thinking: impact driven proposal development.

You will then proceed with developing your proposal concept step-by-step: defining sound objectives, designing an effective work plan with work packages, defining an ideal consortium, and putting together a realistic budget. The impact and exploitation workshops will teach you how to draft the Expected Impact section of your proposal and identify the best scenario for exploitation and IP strategy.

During the Dissemination and Communication workshop, the 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. Third day of the course is dedicated to the evaluation of H2020 proposals. You will become an evaluator and experience first-hand the evaluation process to better understand this critical stage of the selection process in Horizon 2020 and conceive your H2020 proposals in this light in the future. Fourth day will be entirely dedicated to Marie Skłodowska-Curie (ITN/ETN) proposal preparation, where our expert Juliane will guide you through the basics and key aspects of the ITN proposal writing and submission. This fast-track course is intended to provide a complete insight into the successful set-up of an Innovative Training Network through a mix of lectures and interactive exercises.

The training will primarily focus on ’Part B’ of the project, but also cover the main set-ups of ITNs, the EU and evaluators’ expectations, and tips and tricks from successful coordinators.

5 hands-on workshops!

Workshop: Call analysis, concept, objectives and work plan Participants are divided into small groups to practice the first steps of proposal development under Horizon 2020: Call analysis, project concept development, formulation of the project objectives and a preliminary work plan.

Workshop: Expected impact Participants will discuss how to address the expected impacts listed in the work programme topic, and define KPIs and effective approaches for monitoring the achievement of impact.

Workshop: Dissemination and Communication, Exploitation 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. Participants will draft the Expected Impact section and identify the best scenario for exploitation and IP strategy.

Workshop: Budget; Finalising and submitting the proposal Participants will identify the efforts and resources to be committed for the project, with a focus on dissemination and exploitation to define a sound budget. By introducing a real proposal together with the relevant evaluation summary report, the participants will have a better understanding of the evaluators’ perspective and get prepared to evaluate a real proposal.

Workshop: Evaluation of Proposals Participants will receive a full H2020 proposal and evaluate it. This simulation exercise begins with the briefing of the evaluators on the ‘call’ and the rules and procedures of the evaluation process. The evaluators will then conduct their individual assessment of the H2020 proposals, filling in their Individual Evaluation Reports (IER), after which they will gather with their fellow evaluators for consensus meetings. Once the consensus reports are drafted in each panel, final ranking will be established, which will serve as the basis for the allocation of budget amongst the highest ranked proposals.

This fast-track course is intended to provide a complete insight into the successful set-up of an Innovative Training Network through a mix of lectures and interactive exercises. The training will primarily focus on ’Part B’ of the project, but also cover the main set-ups of ITNs, the EU and evaluators’ expectations, and tips and tricks from successful coordinators. Why participate in the Horizon 2020 Proposal Writing Academy? Get a complete insight into the Horizon 2020 programme and its last calls. Understand how to develop a Horizon 2020 project concept with an Impact driven approach. Learn how to design different strategies for writing the Impact section of your proposal. Learn about IP strategies, business models, open access schemes and other exploitation issues. Tailor your communication and dissemination strategy to your results and Impact to be achieved. Learn how to put together a sound project budget. Understand the evaluation process and context to better conceive your proposal. Network and exchange experiences with the representatives of leading universities, research institutions and companies from around the EU and beyond. Our 4-day training programme is built 100% on H2020 and ITN project experience and real-life examples. Our trainers and workshop leaders are flesh-and-bone project managers and coordinators, whose daily work is to develop competitive proposals and coordinate projects. They are currently coordinating and managing 14 ongoing H2020 projects and are preparing proposals for submission under the last calls of H2020. 5 hands-on workshops! Workshop: Call analysis, concept, objectives and work plan Participants are divided into small groups to practice the first steps of proposal development under Horizon 2020: Call analysis, project concept development, formulation of the project objectives and a preliminary work plan. Workshop: Expected impact Participants will discuss how to address the expected impacts listed in the work programme topic, and define KPIs and effective approaches for monitoring the achievement of impact. Workshop: Dissemination and Communication, Exploitation 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. Participants will draft the Expected Impact section and identify the best scenario for exploitation and IP strategy. Workshop: Budget; Finalising and submitting the proposal Participants will identify the efforts and resources to be committed for the project, with a focus on dissemination and exploitation to define a sound budget. By introducing a real proposal together with the relevant evaluation summary report, the participants will have a better understanding of the evaluators’ perspective and get prepared to evaluate a real proposal. Workshop: Evaluation of Proposals Participants will receive a full H2020 proposal and evaluate it. This simulation exercise begins with the briefing of the evaluators on the ‘call’ and the rules and procedures of the evaluation process. The evaluators will then conduct their individual assessment of the H2020 proposals, filling in their Individual Evaluation Reports (IER), after which they will gather with their fellow evaluators for consensus meetings. Once the consensus reports are drafted in each panel, final ranking will be established, which will serve as the basis for the allocation of budget amongst the highest ranked proposals.

Join the upcoming innovation event "FT Innovation Dialogue 4 - Customer-centric Innovation" held in London, United Kingdom by Financial Times Live.

Our 4th Innovation Dialogue will take a practical look at how corporates are redesigning their innovation processes to bring customer intelligence from the outside, in.

Customer-centric innovation turns traditional innovation models inside-out. Conventionally, ideas are sought inside a company with the product and service innovations they produce delivered to customers outside the company.

Customer-centric innovation, conversely, takes some of this process outside, by collaborating with consumers in the external environment and spaces they inhabit and then bringing their ideas back in.

It’s not a new concept, but as businesses move from a transactional to experiential mindset to stay in tune with evolving consumer expectations, it is an increasingly popular one. It means lots more winning ideas, engenders brand loyalty, creates a sense of community, and reduces the risk of new products and services failing to thrive in the marketplace because they are not really what consumers want.

On 11 September 2018, EIT Digital is hosting the third EIT Digital annual flagship conference in Brussels. This year’s theme is Driving Global Impact with European Digital Innovations. Guest speakers and contributors will include representatives from leading technology companies, government officials, industry experts as well as entrepreneurs.
