Horizon2020 Martel’s training: beyond the books
How many H2020 proposals did you write or participated to put together? How many of them did succeed?
In the last couple of years, competition for EU funding has increased tremendously, pushing R&D players to strive for excellence more than ever. Excellence of the consortium composition, excellence of the proposed approach and soundness of each and every single part of the proposal.
Martel Innovate has been successfully involved in the European funding programme Horizon 2020, H2020, since its very beginning with winning proposals. This intense journey has been a learning process, which, thanks also to several failures, has taught us how to optimize the process of putting together strong consortia and writing winning proposals.
Our new H2020 training series has been conceived as a comprehensive and modular package of courses that, beyond collecting essential information about H2020 rules and procedures, aim to provide our partners and customers with concrete tips and recommendations about the process of identifying the best funding opportunities. writing and submitting and excellent proposals.
