Target Audience: Academic/Research Staff - all levels
Format of Event: Information Session with the Opportunity for a Q&A.
This session will focus on addressing the Impact criterion of Horizon 2020 proposals. It will include information on what the evaluators understand by impact on EU projects and what measures must be taken by the beneficiaries to maximise it on Horizon 2020-funded projects. Blazej Thomas, European Adviser at the UK Research Office (UKR) will deliver the session.
Impact is a key evaluation criterion in Horizon 2020. Significant importance is attached to activities that help demonstrate and maximise the societal and economic impact of R&I funding. In order to achieve success in Horizon 2020 it is crucial that the key aspects of impact are addressed in proposals and projects.
Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions of Blazej Thomas and representatives of the International Team in RKES. UKRO, the European Office of the UK Research Councils based in Brussels, provides expert advice on EU funding for research, innovation and higher education.
This session is aimed as staff across all disciplines.
As a result of the session, participants will:
- Have an understanding what evaluators understand by impact.
- Understand how to address impact in Horizon 2020 projects.
