Workshop on how to write FP6 proposals and manage contracts

June 20, 2003

Brussels, 19 Jun 2003

Hyperion and Eurocentre are jointly organising two workshops on how to write a competitive proposal for the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), and how to negotiate, administer and manage an FP6 contract. The events will take place on 28 and 29 August respectively, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The aim of the first course is to train research managers and administrators to write professional and competitive proposals for the Sixth Framework Programme. The course describes the relevance of FP6 to EU policies, the common problems in proposal writing and the success criteria for proposals. The course provides tips on how to collect information, how to select strategic partners and how to avoid duplication in proposal writing. The final section outlines a strategy for proposal writing.

The second course aims to prepare research managers and administrators to negotiate, manage and administer FP6 contracts. The course is based on the presenter's experience, gained through involvement in over 50 Framework Programme contracts.
