Live Zoom Course How to use AI tools in order to develop a successful proposal in Horizon Europe as a coordinator or get involved in one as a partner
Dec 12, 2023 09:30-13:30 CET

Many use and even more will use AI in proposal writing since it can speed up the whole proposal writing phase. But most of the proposals developed with the use of AI are/will be of average quality and very few are/will be successful. The key reason for this is the limited knowledge or the lack of familiarisation with how to use intelligently AI for winning proposals.

Master in this course how to use AI tools (mainly free ones) and practices in order to develop a successful proposal with a focus in Horizon Europe as a coordinator or get involved in one as a partner. Examples will be based on currently open calls in Horizon Europe R&I Programme but all the techniques and tools will be applicable to any European Funding Programme (Erasmus+, Creative Europe, Digital Europe, Life, etc)

Participants: Actors interested in initiating their own proposal or joining other proposals.
