How to come to a winning EU proposal?
Applying for European grants can feel like playing the Champions League: only the absolute best are able to bring in the big bucks. A precondition to win is of course a great team, with complementary strengths and both able to score and to defend. Just as a EU grant application will need partners throughout the value chain and with different qualities, who complement each other in the innovation process. You also wouldn’t even make it to the qualifying rounds without taking time to train. This is the same for EU grants. Start early with the proposal writing, which gives you time to write a coherent proposal and allows you to (slightly) change tactics along the way if necessary. And if you don’t win this round, at least you have gained valuable experience and training hours you can build upon in the next round!
Tips and tricks for EU grant writing
Join a consortium
The easiest way to apply for a European grant, is to join an existing consortium. If you are interested in an upcoming H2020 or IMI call, you can always contact PNO. PNO has a very extensive European network, which results in involvement of multiple projects, also for the upcoming deadlines. Another options is to use specialized ‘partner search tools’, such as Innovation Place (https://www.innovationplace.eu/). After creating an account, you will get alerts if consortia are looking for a partner and you can also search for specific partners. European grant suppliers also offer similar tools, e.g. https://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/organisations/partner_search.html and https://cloud.imi.europa.eu/web/eimi-pst. Subscribing to different newsletters can also keep you up to date.
