Our host institutions expect us to raise research finance for ourselves, our research groups and younger scholars from national and international sources. Currently it seems rather ‘a norm’ that successful and prominent researchers do not only perform well in terms of interesting and top quality research and publishing output but also in terms of attracting external funding to be able to conduct such research.
This webinar opens up one particular case of writing a successful grant application to Horizon 2020 WORK Programme submitted in March 2018. The research project DISCE (Developing Inclusive & Sustainable Creative Economies) started in January 2019 and will last until the end of 2021.
The webinar will not focus on this interesting DISCE research project (in EU jargon it is officially called RIA, research and innovative action) as such but on the phases and decisions made before starting the DISCE project in 2019.
The webinar will address:
• motivation of investing time in writing H2020 application
• UTU team – who took initiative and were involved
• why the particular call was selected
• how the call was addressed, i.e. how to understand the Commission’s requests/needs
• how the consortium was formed, i.e. how we found suitable partners
• how the proposal writing was organised within the consortium - the ways of engaging the partners
• what kind of support was received from the host institutions and from others
• how much time and effort needed to be invested in
Webinar topic is presented by Professor Jarna Heinonen (University of Turku) who is the Principal Investigator of the DISCE project.
