Ideal-ist Proposal Check Event for ICT calls in Horizon 2020


Ideal-ist is holding a proposal check event for ICT & related calls in Horizon 2020, with a March or April 2019 deadline:

Event Dates: 

  • 27 February 2019 in Brussels (hosted by NCP Flanders)
  • 28 February 2019 in Oslo (hosted by RCN)
  • 27-28 February 2019 - online for remote proposal checks via skype

Full proposal check events offer proposers a chance to improve the quality of project proposals based on feedback from experienced external experts and national contact points (NCPs). The event aims to transfer useful knowledge and increase proposers' chances for funding. This service is also being offered remotely.


All applicants should submit a short online application. Spaces are limited, so early applications are encouraged! 
Applicants should be ready to provide a draft full proposal by 25 February 2019, to allow for sufficient time for experts to read them and provide feedback.

On-site attendants
Interested proposers will provide a good first draft of their proposal for the selected ICT call topic (see the list below) and receive qualified feedback from experienced evaluators immediately during the proposal check session. The session consists of the evaluators reading the proposal and a feedback round. All participating experts will sign a confidentiality declaration.
It will be possible to receive additional consulting by experienced NCP staff.

Remote attendants
Ideal-ist will offer a remote evaluation for selected participants. Experienced evaluators will meet with proposers via Skype. The remote nature will require that proposals are sent electronically. There are a limited number of places for this remote evaluation. If you are interested please contact:
[email protected].

Selection of Participants

Proposers who apply to participate at the event go through a quality assurance process. They will be contacted before the event to assess the degree of completion of their proposals. Short-listed candidates will be invited based on the available places.

Who can attend?
Admission to the event is for the coordinator (i.e. one person, mandatory) plus one representative from a project partner institution (i.e. one optional person). In exceptional cases, the coordinator may name a proxy to attend.

The event is free of charge, however, places are limited.

Which calls are supported? 
The event will support proposals for the following Horizon 2020 calls with a deadline in March or April 2019: 

If space is available, Ideal-ist will consider other ICT related calls, such as:

  • ICT in Societal Challenge 1 "Health" (deadlines 16 and 24/04/2019)
  • ICT in Societal Challenge 6 "Societies" (deadline 14/03/2019).

The evaluators on-site do not check the eligibility of the proposers to submit a proposal for the topic. Therefore it is strongly recommended that the proposers have an abstract of their proposal checked by their National Contact Points (NCP).
