Ideal-ist's proposal check events offer a chance to improve the quality of project proposals based on feedback from experienced external experts and national contact points (NCPs) at various stages of the proposal development process. These events aim to transfer useful knowledge and increase proposers' chances for funding.
For the April 2020 deadlines, Ideal-ist is offering a fully online proposal check.
