Aiming to foster excellent research, tackle societal challenges and boost innovation in Europe, the European Union (EU) provides multiple funding opportunities for various target groups: from individual scientists – at different stages of their careers – to large-scale collaborative research teams.

This online workshop seeks to give an introduction to the overall structure and strategic pillars of the EU’s ninth Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon Europe. The programme sets the financial, political and legal framework for a variety of individual funding schemes, which cover a wide array of thematic fields. To this end, Horizon Europe addresses topics such as climate change, sustainable development (keyword “Green Deal”), digitalisation and health. With a total budget of €95.5 billion over seven years (2021–2027), it is one of the world’s largest public funding programmes for research and innovation.

The workshop consists of two 1-hour online sessions taking place as lunch-time webinars on 13 and 15 September 2022. Further information on the focus of the sessions can be found below under "Programme". In addition to this workshop, a second workshop focused on practical tips and tricks to turn an initial project idea into a promising proposal will take place at the end of September. Further information can be found here.

For this training, LMU has once again teamed up with experts from the European Research and Project Office GmbH (EURICE), one of Germany’s largest project and innovation management consultancy firms for European and international R&I projects.

Participants will receive a certificate of participation.
