Ideal-ist Proposal Check Event for ICT calls in Horizon 2020 27-28 February 2019 (On-site in Brussels and Oslo and remote participation)

Ideal-ist is holding a Proposal Check Event for H2020 ICT calls in 2019. The events will take place on the 27 of February in Brussels and 28 of February in Oslo, but proposers will be able to participate remotely as well. The event offers proposers a chance to improve the quality of project proposals based on feedback from experienced external experts and national contact points (NCPs). The event aims to transfer useful knowledge and increase proposers’ chances  for funding.


Onsite attendants

Interested proposers will provide an advanced draft of their proposal for the selected ICT call topic and receive qualified feedback from experienced evaluators immediately during the proposal check session. The session consists of the evaluators reading the proposal and a feedback round. It will be possible to receive additional consulting by experienced NCP staff. All participating experts will sign a confidentiality declaration.

Remote attendants

Ideal-ist will offer a remote evaluation for selected participants. Experienced evaluators will sit in Brussels and Oslo and meet with proposers via Skype. The remote nature of this workshop will require that proposals are sent electronically. There are a limited number of slots for this remote evaluation.

Selection of participants

Proposers who apply to participate at the event go through a case by case selection process. They will be contacted three weeks before the event to assess the degree of completion of their proposals. Short-listed candidates will be invited based on the available places.

Who can attend

The event will support proposals for ICT calls under H2020, with a deadline in March and April, 2019. Admission to the event is for the coordinator (i.e. one person, mandatory) plus one representative from a project partner institution (i.e. one optional person).  In exceptional  cases, the coordinator may name a proxy to attend.

The evaluators on-site do not check the eligibility of the proposers to submit a proposal for the topic. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that the proposers have an abstract of their proposal checked by their NCP.

The event is free of charge, however, slots are limited.

For further questions, please contact your NCP or send an e-mail to:
