August 28th, 2017 by Diana Unander Nordle

When: 20 September 2017 at 10:00 – 12:00

Where: Homeros VF115 Hus F, Växjö

Impact has become one of the key evaluation criteria in Horizon 2020-proposal. Sometimes it is hard to grasp the concept of ‘Impact’ and to explain the potential impact of the proposals. When writing a proposal for the Horizon 2020 – programme, it is important to remember that you are not alone, there are several researchers from all over Europe submitting proposals. This means that your proposal is in hard competition with other scientists/researchers/universities for the same financing. More than anything else, you must convince the evaluators (only through a one proposal) that you are the one the EC should finance. One way to do this is to write a really convincing the impact section. The aim of this Impact WS is to explain the concept of ‘impact’ and provide researchers and research support staff with guidelines on writing the impact part of Horizon 2020 proposals by using market research.

The speaker, Mr Lance Leverette, an Industrial Market Analyst, has been active in EU funded proposals and works with both academics and SME’s in UK, Spain, Slovakia and Greece. Lance is working across several sectors such as water technologies, advanced materials and manufacturing, and medical devices. In his presentation he will discuss the differences in methodologies, how to understand the commercial value of research, how to chart a path to the market, and how these can be worked into the H2020 proposal and project. The session will give participants the framework for addressing impact for Pillars 2 and 3, particularly in terms of exploitation of the project results.  Understanding US framework for commercialization of research is also very valuable providing growing interest for the collaboration with US colleagues within H2020 and beyond. Workshop will be held in English.
