KEY MESSAGES
 Very much stronger emphasis on bringing IN SMEs
 Research for innovation needs to be able to
demonstrate impact and close to market activities
 H2020 to be policy rather than science driven
 Trying to avoid divide between research and
innovation with greater integration between the two
 Different ways of funding projects which will
address the fundamental challenges
 Need to translate knowledge into
impact

Getting ready
What makes a
good project?
Strong consortium
 ESSENTIAL that partners
work COLLABORATIVELY
to develop and deliver
the project – planning
meetings and conference
calls
 Project should build capacity for partners –
developing learning and skills
 Each partner should have clearly defined roles
14
How do you find partners?
 TO LEAD or JOIN?
 Use your own networks and contacts
 Initiate partner search
 Use ERRIN and other similar network
organisations
15
When to start for 2015
 NOW
 Do not wait
 The best bids are usually those which have
taken long time in gestation
16
Essential Elements of bid
 Show evidence that your EU collaboration will lead to
greater benefits
 Explain the EU added value
of your proposal and
policy context What is the IMPACT?
 Ensure your proposal 100%
matches the priorities in
the programme
 Check that your proposal does
not duplicate existing projects
– but you can build on previous
work
17
Keep it clear and simple
 The proposal must be easy to understand
 Be clear about the objectives of your proposal
 Ensure the Work Programme delivers
your objectives in a well managed, detailed
cost-effective programme of actions
 Ensure measurable impact within and
after project duration.
What are your indicators?
 LOOK AT THE AWARD CRITERIA
