The Horizon 2020 proposal writing training was organised by the RI-LINKS2UA project. Partners involved in the training were the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine (MESU), ZSI - Centre for Social Innovation and the National Information Center for Ukraine-EU S&T Cooperation (NIP).

Some background to this training:

Taking into account that new FP (H2020) is more competitive, oriented towards more excellence and the big challenges (climate change, scarcity of resources etc.), activities for enhancing and promoting participation of Ukrainian researchers and its scientific community in Horizon 2020 is an important component of the RI-LINKS2UA project.

From the very beginning of its implementation, the RI-LINKS2UA project in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine organised various H2020 information and training events all over Ukraine. Among others, such type of events were held in December 2016 in Kyiv, in October 2016 in Lviv and Kyiv and in July 2016 in Kyiv.

The most recent training took place on June 8, 2017,  at the premises of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

The main objective of the event was to deliver practical knowledge and insights in H2020 proposal writing, the evaluation procedure, project implementation and management and to show opportunities for associated countries to H2020, such as Ukraine.

The event evoked high interest in the stakeholders’ community and was attended by more than 80 participants representing research institutes, universities and SMEs. The welcome speech was delivered by Viktor Martynyuk, Vice-Rector and Professor at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. Selected RILINKS2UA partners appeared as trainers - they have several years of practical experience and knowledge in previous EU projects and are intensively working in HORIZON 2020 projects now. Their expertise comprises all aspects related to draftint a project proposal, setting up a consortiium and managing projects when successfully funded.

The agenda included presentations on the general scope of H2020, its participation rules, the participant portal navigation, the partner search tools, as well as essential practical tips on how to write innovative and effective Horizon 2020 proposals with above-average chances to win.
