A comprehensive service offer
We accompany you at every step of your research and innovation project by providing the following services.
We organise trainings, networking events, or information sessions all year round. We also publish articles and relay information from the European Commission. Benefitting from the small-scale Luxembourg ecosystem, we often approach national organisations in a proactive way.
Consult our website, www.horizon2020.lu and twitter @NCPHorizon2020 for immediate information or contact us with a specific question.
- Strategy and partners
Work programmes are complex documents that need to be decoded by keeping in mind both the candidate’s and the funder’s expectations. We identify topics and calls that fit best with your organisation’s strategy.
Some programmes, such as the “Societal Challenges” or “Industrial leadership” parts, require European consortia with at least three different countries. We assist you in your search for the skills and knowledge still missing in your consortium. To do so, we draw upon the National Contact Points’ networks and other networks of which we are member, or our direct contacts with the European Commission.
- Support during the project set-up period
It is important to be familiar with both the formal and informal rules of the European project submission process in order to pass the evaluation of these competitive programmes. Complementing Luxinnovation’s support, consultants specialising in European projects are ready to assist project proposers, especially during the drafting of the proposal. A national aid, Fit4Horizon2020, can cover a part of costs induced by these services.
As national contact point, we also advise on certain legal, administrative, or financial aspects.
- Follow-up of on-going projects
During the project lifecycle, further legal or financial questions can occur. Here again, the national contact point, liaising with the European Commission, can guide you.
