Framework 7 – Forming a Team & Writing a Proposal Master Class

From: Digital Communications KTN
Published: Fri Jan 22 2010

The Digital Communications Knowledge Transfer Network is running a series of one day Master Classes in 2010 focussed on participation in Framework 7. A master class on Forming a Team & Writing a Winning Proposal will be held at the Institute of Directors on January 28 2010.

This free event is sponsored by the Digital Communications Knowledge Transfer Network.

The topics covered provide a comprehensive view of the main areas that any organisation planning to participate in FP7 should be aware of:
- Taking the right approach to minimise the cost of participation
- Working with the EU Commission on your proposal
- Available support
- Building a team
- Work integration
- Matching roles to partners
- Consortium organisation
- Partner search methods
- Building a proposal
- Proposal section by section view

These Master Classes build on previous events and webinars delivered by the KTN, and will offer an opportunity for in-depth examination of the task of putting together a winning proposal under Framework 7.
Developing a proposal for the EU Commission has lots of parallels with proposals to other funding organisations and even private investors. If your organisation is planning to seek funding to support R&D then you will find this day of great value.

DC-KTN is planning to run a total of 6 Master Classes during 2010 and you are now able to register for the first of these in London on 28th January at the Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall, London SW1Y 5ED. You can register for this event at:

The Master Class is FREE and will be delivered by Eddie Townsend, our collaboration expert. Eddie has based the material for the workshop on his experience of successful proposal submissions and management in FP6 and FP7.
Eddie has also published articles on the subject of collaboration and the role of collaboration in product innovation.
