Decoding Horizon Europe lump sum model – Expert Insights

If you have been scrolling through the Horizon Europe calls for proposals recently, you may have noticed that more and more of them have lump sum instead of action grant budget-based as the type of funding. The shift is visible, and the Programme will be going towards lump sum calls more and more in the future.

One key phrase from the lump sum model grant agreement, "The grant is an action grant which takes the form of a lump sum grant for the completion of work packages", significantly impacts both the preparation and implementation of proposals. This one-hour webinar introduces the key features of the lump sum model in Horizon Europe, provides budget planning and work package design practices, as well as offers suggestions on how to implement and monitor lump sum projects.

The free webinar is presented by EMDESK in cooperation with Europa Media Trainings.
