PROJECT WRITING TRAINING FOR SMES 2
The event’s content was based on the three key aspects that EC evaluators follow to assess SMEI proposals. The key aspects were supported by coverage of research methods, market analysis, good practice in converting facts and data into winning proposals, writing techniques, the various requirements in ‘standard’ proposal sections and evaluators’ viewpoints on good practice to attract higher scores. The training included exercises to review and develop sample proposals, then compare notes against a checklist. There were also presentations on Horizon 2020 in general, the SME Instrument in particular and a presentation on working experience with Turkish SMEs seeking to write proposals for SMEI. The event’s overall objective was to improve the abilities to participate SMEs in the development of SMEI proposals by seeking out more relevant information and providing more pertinent details in the content of SMEI proposals.
