Unlocking Horizon Europe | A Hands-On Workshop for Emerging Researchers on Application for Collaborative Research Projects

Are you a doctoral student or postdoc eager to delve into the world of collaborative research funding? Join us for a dynamic workshop tailored to demystify Horizon Europe and empower you to navigate its complexities with confidence.

We'll provide a concise overview of HEU's pillars, focusing on Pillar 2 (Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness) and how to access crucial information via the EU Commission’s Funding & Tenders Portal. One central aspect to our discussion will be unravelling the EU Commission's impact logic, a key consideration for successful applications.

Through interactive exercises based on examples of Topics from Cluster 5 "Climate, Energy, Mobility", we'll tackle key issues such as understanding work programmes and calls, the meaning of indicative funding amounts and TRL indicators, and addressing specific requirements such as Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) or European Partnerships. You'll gain practical insights into forming appropriate consortia and navigating the application submission process.

Our goal is to equip you with the clarity and confidence you need to embark on your Horizon Europe journey. As your National Contact Point (NCP) for Cluster 5 in Horizon Europe (Climate, Energy, Mobility), we are happy to be with you every step of the way, offering ongoing support throughout the application process.

Attendance is free of charge. Make sure you register as soon as possible, as places are limited!
