“Horizon 2020 (H2020) is the largest ever European funding program for research and innovation (promoted by the Directorate General “Research and Innovation” of the European Commission) with a budget of 79 billion euros, running until 2020. Its aims are to ensure that Europe produces world-class science, to remove barriers to innovation and to make it easier for public and private sectors to innovate. H2020 has 3 areas of focus: Excellent science, industrial leadership and Societal challenges, which covers all stages of research and innovation – from concept to market.” Adapted from: www.gov.uk/guidance/horizon-2020-what-it-is-and-how-to-apply-for-funding
The workshop shall provide a detailed insight into the application process for Horizon 2020 proposals, including Marie Curie actions. The workshop is especially designed for advanced PhD students, Postdocs and senior researchers who consider or have already concrete plans to apply for EU-Calls during the upcoming years.
The workshop will address the coherence between a successful academic career and international research cooperation, analyses concrete examples for successful and unsuccessful proposals and discuss specific application projects of 3 workshop participants as case studies. To understand how to respond successfully to Horizon2020-Calls, it is important to know the intention behind supported research topics as well as how submitted proposals will be evaluated.
Furthermore, this advanced workshop will focus on the following vital questions:
- Behind the calls: How do European political developments influence the H2020-calls?
- How to build international research networks interested in H2020?
- What are synergies between the European Programmes and why is this interesting?
- Academic Career Roadmap: Combination of funding schemes to achieve your long term goals.
- How can you benefit from BayFOR’s scientific coordination offices?
The achieved knowledge will prove to be useful in order to elaborate or contribute to successful proposals.
