How to Write the Impact of a Horizon 2020 Proposal

Overview of the Course

The aim of this 2 hour workshop is the train researchers how to sell their project ideas in the abstract and the impact. The abstract is used to introduce the proposed concept to the evaluator. It is also used by the Project Officer to select the evaluators and in the panel meeting to select the successful projects.

Impact has become one of the key evaluation criteria in European research proposals. Researchers have difficulty in understanding the concept of 'Impact' and in explaining the potential impact of their proposals.

The course is designed to address these two issues.

Course Duration: 9:00 to 11:00
