Overview of the Course

Pillar II of Horizon Europe is a 'Top-Down' programme. This means that the Topics are designed to address 'Specific' EU policies. Coordinators preparing proposals for Pillar II Topics must have a thorough understanding of the background to the Topic and how the project addresses the 'Specific policies'.

 

A Proposal Intelligence Report is first prepared to identify the background to the Topics , expert groups consulted in preparing the topic and previous projects funded in this area.

Following this report this Workshop can be presented.
