Horizon 2020 : Understanding the architecture of the programme :
The EU Research and Innovation Programme is divided into 3 pillars, which are complemented by four transversal programmes.
How to access the Structural funds ? :
European Structural Funds, known by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the European Development Fund (ERDF), differ from other European funds and help to fund local development projects. Sophie Le Grand, expert in European structural funds at Welcomeurope, gives us more information on these funds.
How to increase your chances for eligibility? :
To make sure that your project will retain the attention of the European Commission, it is crucial to highlight its innovative character, its European dimension and its impact on the long term, while setting it within the context of the EU policy objectives.
The contribution of financial partners in the budget of the project :
The role of financial partners is essential for the implementation of your project. Although nearly inactive they secure both the smooth progress of the project and the financial situation of your enterprise.
Mastering the language of european projects :
Deliverable, outputs, outcomes, objectives… project leader language can be really nonsense for those who are not used to this specific vocabulary and can be a serious impediment to an application to a European-funded project.
