The Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation Programme is the EU’s primary research & innovation funding mechanism. The programme is hugely popular and many calls are extremely competitive. We have therefore invited our UKRO European Advisor, Ian Devine, to visit Salford on 15 June to give the view from Brussels on how to develop your proposals in order to have the best possible chance of success.
With a budget of €80bn covering the period 2014-2020, Horizon 2020 is the key source of research funding available from the EU and offers opportunities for international research collaboration, European and international fellowships, individual research grants, feasibility studies and research for SMEs, doctoral training and much more.
Book your place now for the following sessions:
10:30am-12pm: The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships scheme
The session will include an introduction to the scheme and the application process and tips on writing a successful proposal. It will also include personal reflections from recently successful applicants based here at Salford.
2pm-3pm: Writing a successful Horizon 2020 proposal
The session will cover a range of issues to consider when developing a proposal, including finding partners, key policy issues to address, and evaluator feedback, including pitfalls to avoid and tips for writing a winning proposal.
