Open call for Training School "How to support successful grant proposals in Horizon Europe: from Cross-cutting Issues to Grant Writing"
The Training School "How to support successful grant proposals in Horizon Europe: from Cross-cutting Issues to Grant Writing" will be organised on July 1-3, 2019, in Zagreb, Croatia.
The high complexity and competitivity of the current research and innovation ecosystem, with a growing diversity of funding sources associated with often complicated application processes, necessitates the support of research administrator experts in pre-award and, particularly in grant writing/grant revision. As such, research administrators play a key role in supporting both, research institutions and individual researchers getting competitive funding and improving successful rates, particularly in high competitive funding schemes as EU Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation.
The role of research administrators in institutions is now more important than ever, given the increasing need for external research funding. Securing science funding simply cannot perform without efficient processes running their engine. Scouting opportunities and support to proposal preparation, particularly in grant writing and revision, reinforced by a strong knowledge on EU funding programmes and its specificities are key to success.
