How to write a concept note for your H2020 project proposal

Brief introduction to training

The European Commission (EC) programmes and especially H2020 programmes are a significant potential source of funding for NGOs but understanding what it is exactly that the Commission wants is often quite challenging. Drafting a comprehensive concept note under highly competitive conditions often discourages organisations from even applying. Those that do apply frequently end up wasting a lot of time and resources drafting unsuccessful proposals. This webinar will help participants to develop the concept note drafting technique and maximize their organization’s chances of obtaining a European funding.
