Horizon Europe, like any other large global initiative, requires a comprehensive application form to be properly filled out if you want to finance your study or innovation project. Among others, Part A, Part B, and art C are comprised of this application form. After an applicant completes this form, it is evaluated by different experts and, soon after, a decision is made whether or not it is accepted. While filling out this form might be time-consuming, it is critical that the applicant or the coordinator thoroughly look over it and fill out all data requested. Each part of this application form is further divided into different sections, which are very important and crucial to the application process.

Part A:

This part of the application form is comprised of all the information that is important to the project, from the get-go. It includes your information, along with the administrative data, your budget for the project, and your plans for it. For more info, please visit the section in our website (Main sections of Part A of a European Proposal)

Part B:

This part includes downloading and completing annex forms and, once completed, followed it up by uploading the completed annex forms online. Make sure to read all the instructions given in order to avoid all conflicts.

This document is sent in a pdf format which is created from a word document, whose template is downloadable through the “Submission System” of the specific call. You should always make sure that you use the right template, as there are often small variations in Horizon Europe calls for proposals.

Part B is comprised of the following sections[1]:

  • In this section, it should define:
    1. The objectives of the project and how they are aligned with the objectives of the topic.
    2. Ambition: where we will defend the innovation we bring and how our solution is positioned with respect to the state of the art.
    3. The concept and methodology to be followed but from a strategic point of view.
  • Impact: This section will explain:
    1. How we will achieve the expected impacts mentioned in the topic and what KPIs we will set in the short, medium and long term with regard to these impacts.
    2. Our targeted stakeholders (customers and clients, providers, policy makers, public authorities, end users…)
    3. Other expected impacts. It is very important to link these impacts to the “Sustainable Development Goals” proposed by the UN[2].
    4. Barriers we may face in achieving these expected impacts.
    5. What communication and dissemination measures will we rely on to achieve these impacts?
    6. Exploitation plan of the project results.
    7. CANVAS diagram to link needs, with expected results, outcomes, impacts, target groups and dissemination, communication and exploitation measures.
  • Implementation:
    1. Detailed work plan with tasks and deliverables per WP.
    2. Expected milestones to be achieved during the project.
    3. Risks management plan with contingency measures that may affect to the project implementation.
    4. Gantt and PERT Diagram of the project
    5. Brief explanation on how you will use the project budget.

Part C:

It contains related annexes such as ethics documents, letters of support or any other document which may be relevant for the EC and the evaluators.
