The course is designed for young scientists, group leaders, coordinators and project managers intending to submit a proposal in H2020. (The learned can equally be applied to other national or international tenders - exception DFG). Different tools and techniques will be used to raise the participants awareness to the impact section. Aspects addressed includes:

  • increasing innovation capacities,
  • integrating new knowledge and social or environmental effects of a project,
  • exploitation and dissemination strategy,
  • communication activities and the handling of intellectual property

The course takes place over 1.5 days and will be conducted in English.

Our training combines theory with practical exercises and is characterized by the greatest possible interaction with the coaches, but also between the participants.

An important part of the training is practicing with a real call text. This information must be identified and extracted by participants in the Participant Portal to introduce them to the European Commission's web portal. The participants are thereby enabled to study further aspects such as to carry out a self-evaluation in the field of ethics.

Depending on the composition of the group, either an existing call for proposals will be selected or suggested by the participants. Based on the selected call for proposals, the corresponding proposal template form (extracted section 2) will be used. Results generated during the training will be directly transferred into the template.

On day 1, a general introduction in Grant Writing will take place to provide an overview of the structure of research applications (the three parts Excellence, Impact and Implementation). The overall relationship between these parts (coherence) and relevant terms (for example, aim & objectives) will be explained. Building on this, the criteria and essential contents of the Impact section are discussed and successively built up based on examples, group work and homework.

For each part of the section Impact there is a short theoretical introduction followed by group discussion or group work.

At the end of day 1 the participants know all relevant aspects of section 2 and have already transferred their own ideas into the proposal template.

The homework assignment for Day 2 is the further elaboration of the (call) text topic and the transfer of essential information from Scope, Challenge and Expected Impact to the exercise book or corresponding section of the template form. The homework will be presented and optimized in the group work of the following day. The aim of the training is that each subsection of Section 2 as well as each of the expected impacts mentioned in the call text have been underpinned with ideas for later elaboration and specification.

At the end of the course, the participants know core aspects of Section 2, which they can complete independently and - according to the specific research topics of the participants - further specified.

All participants will be required to complete a Non-Disclosure Agreement in order to ensure the confidentiality of all research ideas and to foster intellectual exchange among participants.

Most of our trainings are booked as a complete in house courses and thus not open for registration. If you are interested in booking a course please do not hesitate to contact us.
