This course aims at providing participants with key tools and tips to build successful Marie Curie project proposals. The thorough analysis of the proposal templates for this particular strand of Horizon 2020 will allow participants to acquire the competence needed to complete the administrative, technical and financial sections of the proposals – particularly within the framework of ITN.

Frontal lectures will always be coupled with practical exercises; furthermore, participants will be provided with examples of completed sections of proposal templates, to help them acquire basic notions for successful project elaboration and to equip them with ready-to-use and easy-to-adapt material for designing future H2020 proposals.

c) elaboration of the Implementation Section: definition of project management structures, risks and
