If you are thinking about applying to Horizon 2020, take a look at this useful guidance document. It is designed for proposal evaluators but it is also useful for potential applicants to see how various “cross-cutting” issues, such as social sciences and humanities, the gender dimension, responsible research and innovation, public engagement etc. will be evaluated in Horizon 2020 proposals. It can be found on the Participant Portal.

As part of our UKRO membership we have an annual visit from our European advisor. Alex Berry will visit us on Monday 6 October. We are working on the programme for the day with her and will publish more details here when we have them. There will probably be sessions on Marie Sklowdowska-Curie Actions, a session on social sciences and humanities in H2020 and a clinic session where people can sign up for a  short slot to discuss their H2020 project ideas.
