Practical Tips for EU Proposals

In the European programs, you must always wait for calls for proposals before you may submit an application. Current calls for proposals can be viewed at FIT für die Wissenschaft; Calls for proposals In Horizon 2020 can be viewed here.

Each European line of funding has its own application requirements of which the EU Liaison Office will be happy to inform you. Details of the calls for proposals may differ greatly depending on their specifics and requirements. All specific instructions and guidelines (Call Fiche, Work Program, Guide for Applicants) regarding applications must therefore be read carefully before submitting a proposal. Please note that submission deadlines are to be meticulously observed. Applications in Horizon 2020, as already in FP7, can only be submitted electronically, as the submission web portal closes immediately on expiry of the deadline. Most of the European lines of funding have well-developed federal government advisory services at the national contact points. The European Liaison Office of the German Research Organizations (KOWI) also provides well-structured advisory services. General information regarding applications has been compiled by the BMBF EU office in the form of a brochure, which is available under “Downloads” in the right-hand column. Please do not hesitate to contact the EU Liaison Office should you have any further questions concerning your application!
