The Horizon Europe programme offers many opportunities for both HEIs and SMEs. However, many SMEs struggle to adopt the right strategy, business processes, skills or other resources to get involved in European funding partnerships. And even though the participation of HEIs has been the strongest among others within European funding, their involvement for the new framework can be further enhanced. To create a higher success rate and avoid missed opportunities for more strategic cooperation between HEIs and SMEs, the UNITE4HORIZON consortium has developed a supportive engagement training programme.
This 1-day online programme will deliver a part of the engagement training programme, with a focus on the proposal development phase and on accelerating the impact of the project. Based on our research on HEI-SME collaboration and our expertise, we will share with you our knowledge and tips & tricks on developing a proposal and to optimise the impact of your project. Not only the impact that the project results may have, but also the impact on the partnerships. The collaboration within projects, especially Horizon Europe projects, should not be seen as single-time collaboration as there is a huge benefit and potential in turning those relationships into a strategic partnerships.
This training programme will provide a platform for you to:
