Horizon Europe course offerings
We have courses for you whether you are a beginner or already have extensive experience with EU projects.
Who is this for?
These courses are suitable for those who work as researcher, EU advisor at a university or university college, work in business or the public sector and want to gain more knowledge about the opportunities in Horizon Europe.
There are three levels of difficulty. In order for everyone to get the most out of the courses, it is important that you stick to your level, and not just pick the first one that comes in the calendar.
Level 1: Beginner. For those who are applying for EU projects for the first time, or if it has been a long time since you have participated in an EU project.
Level 2: Intermediate cource. For those who have previous experience of EU projects, but want to know more. For example, if you have participated as a partner in a project in the past, but will now have a larger role, such as leader of a work package or coordinator.
Level 3: Advanced. Our most advanced courses. For you who are already a coordinator or project manager, or you who will support others in your organisation. In order to benefit from the courses at this level, it is important that you have taken the level 2 courses previously, or have equivalent competence.
Why should you take part?
