On June 21st, 2023, the WAITRO Regional Focal Point for Europe, led by Sergio Ibañez Perez at Leitat organized the Workshop Horizon Europe Tools & Tips webinar. The objective of the event was to foster international cooperation under the Horizon Europe program by giving potential non-European partners a comprehensive overview of what is expected from them by the European coordinator and consortium when participating in a Horizon Europe proposal.
The budget allocated to international cooperation topics has followed an increasing trend during the last Research Framework Programmes from the European Commission. To promote their development and to bring these funding schemes closer to WAITRO’s non-European members, it is important to know the tools that the European Commission makes available, as well as the dynamics of the participation formats.
This workshop also aimed to provide a benefit to WAITRO’s European members by training non-European members on the processes and about what the potential European project coordinators expect from them when working on a proposal. In the same way, to generate an international networking that facilitates the linking through consortia.
