Webinar Proposal Writing in H2020

This insightful webinar is held by Jeanne Collin, head of projects in Welcomeurope. During the Expert Session Jeanne provides us with the key information and practical tips on drafting the Impact Section of Horizon 2020 (H2020) application. What are the expectations of the jury of EU funded projects and how to exceed them? How to master the contractual obligations and main definitions? How to come away with a strategy to achieve the highest impact during the project implementation?

To answer these questions, Jeanne gives an overview of the impact section structure of the Horizon 2020 proposal and highlights two main points:

  • The first point relates to the expected impact and how to contribute to each one of them mentioned in the work programme
  • The second point refers to the measures taken to maximize these impacts. It is crucial to explain how activities are implemented and how successful networking can work for both dissemination/use and communication activities

Jeanne emphasizes that the main component of a successful application is explaining the Commission how your project is in line with the Europe 2020 strategy and how it is to be quantified through KPIs. Also, she explaines how to prove this and how communication, exploitation, and dissemination activities should be addressed during the proposal writing phase to demonstrate and maximize the societal and economic impacts of EU funded projects.
