Horizon Europe and beyond!

The reality is that writing research proposals is time-consuming with a low success rate. This course will provide a practical guide on how to build on past and current projects funded by the EU, navigate the vast Horizon Europe framework program, and write competitive research proposals.

Course content

The European framework program Horizon Europe is the EU’s main funding programme for research and innovation. Running from 2021 to 2027 with a budget of 95.5 billion euros, it is the most extensive research funding programme globally.

However, the complexity and documentation render the program challenging to navigate. These challenges are the drivers behind developing a practical how-to course on using the vast amount of data in the EU system to think outside the box and understand and navigate the Horizon Europe framework program.

Learning outcome

Participants will get an overview of:

  • How to take advantage of past and current projects funded by the EU Commission to think outside the box?
  • How to navigate Horizon Europe – Pillar II to find relevant ‘Call to Action’?
  • How to write the core concept of a research proposal?

Target group

Suitable for those who want to learn more about practical creativity, Horizon Europe and writing research proposals. For this round, the target group is associate professors, professors and experienced researchers (with some years of research experience after their defense and interested in finding out what is relevant for them in the EU funding landscape).
