Webinar about the Horizon Europe Application Template - Excellence

The Excellence section of a Horizon Europe proposal covers the strong project idea, the motivation behind the project, concrete objectives and concept and methodology. If you wish to know more about how best to go about writing this section, please join our webinar on 18 May 1:30-2:30 pm CET.
  • Time and place
  • When May 18, 2021 from 02:30 PM to 03:30 PM

The webinar will focus on the full 45 page application for Research and Innovation projects (RIA) and Innovations projects (IA) in pillar II of Horizon Europe.

In the Excellence section it is important that the ambitions and the motivation for the project shines through. In this section it is possible to really impress the evaluators with a strong, beyond-state-of-the-art project idea and a clear definition of what the project will accomplish.

In Horizon Europe, the Excellence section covers:
1.1 Objectives and ambition
1.2 Methodology


We will go over what the strong Excellence section needs to cover. Head of Unit Peter Härtwich from the European Commission will explain the structure of the Excellence section and go through what the European Commission requires and expects from applicants.

Furthermore, we have invited Efthymios Altsitsiadis, Assistant Professor at Copenhagen Business School, to present how he approaches the Excellence section. Efthymios Altsitsiadis has substantial experience from a number of successful Horizon 2020 applications and from working as an evaluator for the European Commission.
