“Writing a successful H2020 Proposal” Training
HES-SO, Lausanne
7 September 2017

Dr. Monique Calisti, Martel Innovate Director and Executive Partner, will guide you through the fundamentals of successful H2020 proposals’ preparation and submission.

Horizon 2020 is the biggest European Research and Innovation programme ever with almost €80 billion of funding available over seven years (2014- 2020). H2020 aims at financing breakthroughs, discoveries and top-noth innovations by taking great ideas from the laboratory to the market and to the society for the benefit of all citizens. By coupling research and innovation, Horizon 2020 is investing in the future of the whole European society and so put it at the heart of “the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs“.

Horizon 2020 is open to everyone and since January 2017 Switzerland is fully associated to it, but, despite the efforts of the European Commission (EC) to make is better accessible when compared to previous Framework Programmes, it is still a big challenge to be able to navigate the different funding options, understand which financial instruments can better fit to specific ideas and plans, and finally how to get through the overall procedures that will finally allow you to benefit from the H2020 offering.



“Writing a successful H2020 proposal” is a one-day comprehensive, hands-on and interactive learning opportunity for participants who need to master the fundamental aspects for successful European Union funded R&D proposal preparation and submission. The course is structured in a modular and interactive way by providing the participants an opportunity to play an active role in their training independently based on their level of familiarity with EU funding mechanisms.

  • H2020 spans across seven years (2014-2020) with a budget of almost €80 billion!
