Innovation in H2020 food and transport projects – are you ready for the stage 2 proposal writing?


6th May 2020 at 3:08 pm



Are you waiting for the results of your stage 1 proposal or have you just received an invitation to submit the full (stage 2) proposal? Well done! If you are wondering about the chances of success in stage 2, we have estimated these for a number of call topics with recently published evaluation results – see the lists at the end of this blog post. You may also be interested in our recent blog post on the most frequently asked questions that researchers ask before writing the stage 2 proposal. And of course you may ask yourself:

How to get started for stage 2 proposal writing?
