Kurset gir en introduksjon til prosjektutvikling i Horisont Europa (arbeidsprogram, emner og utlysninger, søknadsprosess, hva som kjennetegner søknader til Horisont Europa, de ulike prosjekttypene, samt søknadsforberedelse). I løpet av kurset vil vi gjennomgå søknadsprosessen fra ide til ferdig prosjektforslag, og du vil få prøve deg gjennom en praktisk øvelse.
