For newcomers to EU funding who would like to understand the mechanisms of EU funding, focusing in  Horizon Europe, and explore opportunities.
This is an online training course for those that would like to understand what the EU has to offer in funding innovative projects and how they can find their way into one.

Values + Vision

Training consists of modules that will teach you how to navigate across the EU funding ecosystem, how to identify opportunities, search for organisations with common goals, introduce your company to experienced leading players and participate into winning consortia.
All modules are divided into shorter sessions to help you understand the main concepts in just a few minutes.
The content is enriched with presentations, training notes, simulation exercises, curated literature from EU and templates.
Prerequisites: None. An understanding of basic notions and terms (Grant, project, innovation) would help but if you do not have it, the first module will lay out the groundwork.
