October 29-30, 2020. Hosted by TNO, The Hague.

After the success of our last EU training, we are delighted to announce that the YEAR – Young European Associated Researchers will host a 2-day training event on Impact and Pitching of Horizon 2020 EU proposals. The event will be organized together with TNO and with one of Europe’s most highly esteemed and sought after trainers – Sean Mc Carthy of Hyperion on EU Proposal writing for H2020. 

The training will be held in The Hague, Netherlands, on October 29-30. Full details will follow soon, a preliminary agenda is HERE.


The event will include 1.5 days of training with Sean, and a half-day workshop to bring some of the learned into practice. This international event brings the added value of networking among multidisciplinary Young Researchers, who are interested in developing EU proposals, in 8 YEAR Institutes (VTT, TNO, Sintef, RISE, VITO, AIT, Tyndall and AICIA) with high potential for finding core partners for new project proposals.

While YEAR does not impose age limitations, we are focused on early stage Researchers (15 years since primary degree, or 10 years or less experience in Research). Please encourage relevant members of your team, who you would like to develop in EU Proposal writing, to participate in this high impact event. While the event is fully sponsored and funded YEAR/TNO, funding for travel and hours is expected to come from your own organization.

Looking forward to see you in The Hague!

The YEAR Board!
