The European Funding Academy

The full EU R&I project lifecycle from the proposal concept till the final report - The essence of all our knowledge: The European Funding Academy

21 June 2016 - 24 June 2016

This 4-day intensive course will help you develop more competitive proposals under Horizon 2020 calls and effectively manage your projects.

The European Funding Academy provides a complete insight to the EU research and innovation programmes of 2014-2020 (there are other funding sources besides H2020) and draws on the lessons learned from the:

1.The first calls of H2020;
2. Dozens of our winning and lost proposals; and
3. Our recently funded H2020 projects, including the first reports submitted.

This course is built on our direct experience gained over the past 175 years from developing and submitting proposals and implementing projects under the EU Programmes, in particular, FP5/6/7, FP6, FP7, CIP, LIFE/LIFE+, LLP and now Horizon 2020. We have developed and submitted several proposals under Horizon 2020, went through grant agreement preparations for those projects which have been successful, and are now managing our new H2020 projects as coordinator (e.g. or partner.

Our trainers and workshop leaders are flesh-and-bone project managers and coordinators, whose day-to-day work is to turn innovative project concepts into competitive proposals and implement projects according to EC Grant Agreement, tackling problems promptly, and assisting project partners in legal, technical and financial management issues.

The European Funding Academy goes beyond the official texts – it presents real-life examples, analyses actual proposals and evaluation summary reports and shows success and failure stories in research and innovation projects.
