Are you ready to submit a competitive project proposal under Horizon 2020?

Join Europa Media’s Horizon 2020 Proposal Development workshop and obtain the essential hands-on knowledge and skills to transform your innovative project ideas into competitive project proposals in response to calls under Horizon 2020.

Why participate in the "1-day Horizon 2020 Proposal Development" workshop?

1. TRAINERS are actual Project Managers and Coordinators

This course is built on our direct experience gained over the past 16 years from developing and submitting proposals and implementing projects under the EU's Research Framework Programmes. The trainers of Europa Media are actual project managers, coordinators and financial administrators of EU-funded research and innovation projects. They are currently involved in more than 10 successful ongoing Horizon 2020 projects as project coordinator, work package or task leader, and are on a daily basis conceiving and developing their own project proposals under the open and forthcoming H2020 calls. This course is designed based on this direct experience and is therefore 100% practice-driven.


Experience Europa Media's renowned "learning-by-doing" approach: hear presentations providing tips and examples, then practice your newly-gained knowledge during the practical and interactive workshops.

Proposal Development under Horizon 2020

Actual proposal development in response to a work programme topic (“call”): After going through a simple exercise, you will be encouraged to pursue a new way of thinking – a method to ensure that you get started in the right way in turning your innovative idea into a sound H2020 concept in response to a call. You will then further develop your proposal concept step-by-step: defining sound objectives, designing an effective work plan with work packages, deliverables, milestones, conceiving a Gantt chart and a PERT diagram, defining an ideal consortium, elaborating on impact and exploitation issues, and putting together a realistic budget.
