Past Event: ‘Preparing Final Stage Collaborative Horizon 2020 grants’

  • 7th Floor, Maple House, 149 Tottenham Court Rd (opposite Warren Street Tube station)
  • Slide Deck (UCL login required)

UCL European Research and Innovation Office (ERIO) held a workshop to provide UCL’s research community with information and advice on how to prepare proposals under the EU Horizon 2020 Work Programmes for 2016-2017.

The workshop began by providing general information on how to prepare collaborative applications, including listening to the experiences of an evaluator, followed by 2-3 (as needed) thematic sessions to cover specific work programmes.

Past Event: Preparing full-length ("single-stage" or "Stage 2") collaborative Horizon 2020 proposals

This workshop was directed at UCL staff who had either confirmation of successful Stage 1 collaborative proposals and had therefore been invited by the EU to submit to Stage 2, or who planned to submit a single-stage proposal in the next 4 months.

We were happy to welcome Dr Peter Sheard (CEO of Trend 2000 Ltd) as a keynote speaker at theworkshop. Dr Sheard is an ex- EU grant evaluator and has significant experience in the preparation of proposals with strong dissemination & exploitation plans, which are crucial components of Horizon 2020 grants.

Past Event: Preparing “Stage 1” collaborative Horizon 2020 proposals

  • Tuesday 9th September 2014 from 09:30 to 11:30
  • Medawar Building, Room G01

On 1st January 2014 the new seven-year EU research & innovation funding scheme “Horizon 2020” commenced.  Horizon 2020 has been allocated a €79 billion budget to fund thousands of projects across a broad range of disciplines. The application process for Horizon 2020 has also been simplified and streamlined compared with its predecessor FP7, and greater use will be made of a “two stage” application process, in which a short project outline is evaluated before work commences on a full-scale proposal.

UCL European Research and Innovation Office (ERIO) is holding a series of events to provide UCL’s research community with insights into the Horizon 2020 programme and tips on how to secure funding. After the success of two earlier events (including one focused upon “Marie Curie” mobility funds), ERIO held a workshop centred on“Stage 1” (outline) proposals in Horizon 2020, for collaborative callsutilising the “two-stage” application process.

We were pleased to welcome Richard Hudson and Maryline Fiaschi ofScience|Business as keynote speakers at this workshop. Richard and Maryline provided insights and tips on how to address the crucial Impact and Dissemination components of Horizon 2020 proposals, based on Science|Business’s experience as an EU project partner specialising in this area.

Past Event: Marie Curie Info Workshop

  • Friday 1st August 2014 from 11:00 to 13:00
  • Chandler House, Room G10

In January 2014 the new EU research & innovation funding programme, Horizon 2020, commenced.  The application process for H2020 is somewhat simplified compared with its predecessor FP7, and there are many calls relevant to the research interests of UCL staff.

ERIO plans to hold a series of events to provide UCL’s research community with information on Horizon 2020, and after the success of the event dedicated to writing the “Impact” section of Horizon 2020 proposals, we are now holding an information workshop for UCL researchers on Friday 1st August to address the updated programme for research fellowships under Horizon 2020: Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions.

We are very pleased to welcome Prof. Michael Blakemore (Chair of the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities Marie Curie Evaluation Panel) as a keynote speaker at this event. We plan to adapt the programme to match the attendees' profiles and interests, and we therefore invite you to fill in this online registration form as accurately as possible to allow us to do this.
