Description of the event:
Are you interested in how research projects acquire EU funding? Don’t miss this interview with the current Young Observers for insights on the process and tips for a successful application. Deadline to apply for the next round is December 14.
Who can apply?
Students enrolled in a master’s programme in an EU Member State can apply to the Young Observers programme. If selected, they will be invited to observe the critical evaluation phase (whether projects receive EU funding or not!) of research and innovation projects the European Research Executive Agency (REA) receives.
These projects can touch on numerous topics: mitigating the effects of the climate crisis, improving the lives of migrants in Europe, increasing cybersecurity amongst others; feeding into major EU policies such as the European Green Deal, the Digital Decade, and the EU Missions in Horizon Europe
REA manages several research topics under Horizon Europe– the EU’s framework for research - and other EU-funded research programmes. Throughout the year, calls for proposals for funding open, divided by topic. Independent and external experts, joined by observers, evaluate the proposals REA receives and decide the proposals that receive funding. The Young Observers partake in this phase of the process.
