The Research Council of Norway is coming to the University of Agder to host a course in how to write Horizon Europe Proposal Development.
“Take advantage of meeting and learning from EU experts at The Research Council of Norway. The course is focused on Horizon Europe applications, but it will also enable you to write better and more successful applications for any public funding scheme,” says Isabelle-Louise Aabel, EU Advisor at GCE NODE.
The course is fundamentally about how you transform a research & innovation idea into an attractive proposal. It explains with what you have to write and provides advice on how to structure and present your ideas. A hands-on exercise on evaluating a proposal helps to emphasize some key lessons.
For more information, please contact Isabelle-Louise Aabel.
