This workshop provides you with valuable input for writing a competitive EMJD proposal based on the experiences of the first evaluated calls under EMJD-Action 1b proposals in combination with the experience of the 3 calls under Marie Curie ITN in FP7.
EMJD-Action 1b focuses on a structured inter-university cooperation model and on the implementation of an integrated doctoral programme and is as such coordinated by DG EAC and not DG RTD. We think it is detrimental for a successful application to write an EMJD-Action 1b proposal from a research perspective and use all knowledge and skills available from writing Marie Curie ITN proposals.
We provide you with solid background information about the objectives, the policy context and the basic principles of the EMJD-Action 1b. We focus on the evaluation criteria applicable to Part E of EMJD-Action 1b proposals:
- Academic and research quality
- Partnership experience and composition
- European integration and functioning
- Provisions for candidates granted an EMJD-Action 1b fellowship
- Management, sustainability and quality assurance
We aim to increase your understanding of these evaluation criteria by explaining the expectations of the European Commission and giving examples of best practice.
Participants obtain general and latest information about the EMJD-Action 1b. Participants receive strategic and practical input for writing competitive EMJD-Action 1b proposals.
To provide researchers and EU Liaison and nternationalisation Officers with strategic and practical input for writing competitive EMJD-Action 1b proposals.

This workshop is of value for:
- Researchers already planning a Joint Doctorate Programme;
- Researchers having obtained a Marie Curie ITN planning to make their ITN project sustainable;

- Research groups with an ERC Advanced Grant Laureates
- University support staff like EU Liaison and Internationalisation Officers, experienced and nonexperienced

The seminars are in English, with no translation. Participants are provided with solid background information.
Hands-on experience will be facilitated by a number of interactive exercises.

Lotte Jaspers from Yellow Research
Yellow Research has a strong focus on FP7. Because of this experience, we want to introduce this course on writing successful EMJD-Action 1b proposals in combination with our experience of setting up complex research collaborations among universities.
Together with Mette Skraastad, founding partner of Yellow Research, Lotte has set up courses for ERC starting and advanced grants. With Alie Kwint she has developed an indepth course on how to write Marie Curie ITN proposals.
Lotte has been advisor to the Dutch government with regard to the Rules for Participation for FP5 up to FP7 as well as the Dutch University Association (VSNU). She was a representative in the FP7 Model Grant Agreement Consultation Group on behalf of the Netherlands. Lotte has extensive experience in the legal and financial aspects of FP7 Grant Agreements.
