This workshop is a cooperation of Yellow Research and Kwintessence and will take place in Amsterdam or can also be given as an in-house course at your institution.
This workshop is all about making your Marie Curie ITN proposal the best competitive proposal.
Competition for the ITN-proposals is fierce, and it is not enough to provide good science! Based on the experiences of the previous ITN evaluations in FP7, this workshop will provide you with valuable input for writing a competitive ITN proposal.
We will provide you with solid background information about the principles and objectives, and about the policy context of the ITN-programme. We will focus on the evaluation criteria applicable to ITN-proposals:
- Science and Technology quality
We will aim to increase your understanding of these evaluation criteria by explaining the expectations of the European Commission, and by giving examples of best practice.
Participants will obtain general and latest information about the People programme, in particular about the ITN scheme. Participants will receive strategic and practical input for writing competitive ITN-proposals.
Who should attend
This workshop will be of value for researchers and EU Liaison Officers, experienced and non-experienced.
The workshop will be in English, with no translation. Participants will be provided with solid background information. Moments of discussions are included in the programme to promote exchange of views between participants and trainers, as well as group work to ensure active participation. Lessons learnt from previous evaluations will be discussed where possible.
