17 Build the consortium choose the right partners Prepare a proposal abstract (1 page maximum). Don t need and should not be extensive. Don t disclose critical information. Design your consortium in line with project objectives. If applicable, Choose an enthusiastic experienced co-ordinator, who has appropriate time and resources available! Choose partners motivated and committed to deliver Build a credible well balanced consortium - complementarity! Consider the geographical spread, expertise, type (eg SME) Check the reputation and resources of your partners! Consider the language barrier and cultural differences! Choose partners you would like to work with for years Develop mutual trust! Don t involve your direct competitor(s)!
18 Build the consortium/ Find partners check your own existing international contacts: business & academic contacts, conferences, fairs use bilateral agreements draw on the contacts of colleagues use the networks of NCPs, IRCs,... use the Internet, CORDIS Partners/Projects, EoI attend Information Days, Brokerage Events, etc. ensure that foreign colleagues can contact you: e.g. develop your profile, Internet homepage,...
19 Partner search, example Project proposal: Promotion of Short-term Biofuel Production Technologies for the Road Transport Sector in Associated Candidate Countries Through a Business Oriented Approach The proposed project aims at unveiling to (potential) biofuel players in CC-12 new business opportunities that have been created thanks to technological advances and the introduction of policy oriented initiatives and actions within the context of European Framework Programmes and not only. The ultimate goal of the proposed project is to enhance the production and use of biofuels (BF) for transport (in particular biodiesel (BD) and bioethanol (BE)) in CC-12. Therefore, the project s goes beyond awareness creation (where a significant number of relevant projects/ initiatives national and European have already pace the way) and aims mainly at encouraging and supporting (i) collaborations - networking among current and potential actors in the BF sector (both from the CC-12 and the EU-15) and (ii) transfer technology and good practices concerning BF production and use (from EU-15 to CC-12 and also within CC-12). PROMISE major objectives are: To bring advanced and most promising RTD results a step closer to commercial exploitation through networking and technology transfer activities. To activate new players in the BF sector (production and use) by targeting organisations SMEs particularly operating in fields of strategic importance for BF. To provide to interested parties with high-added value guidance and support. To encourage and facilitate the development of demonstration, RTD (e.g. technology optimisation or pilot implementation) multinational projects and generally technology exploitation projects..

21 Proposal Writing (1) Keep in mind evaluators are from industry, universities,non-university research organisations, others (diverse profiles) first, 3 to 6 evaluators evaluate each proposal individually, then they prepare a summary report, the evaluators are in seclusion for several days under "spartan" conditions... they have to evaluate 3-5 proposals per day the evaluators may not be the ultimate experts in the field of your proposal... Keep it clear and simple without loosing quality
22 Proposal Writing (2) Keep in mind a strong title, acronym an interesting project summary (objectives, results, R&D- approach, partnership, utility of results, exploitation) convincing techn. background and state of the art clear objectives, methods, results and deliverables well designed work plan (work packages, milestones, deliverables; diagrams; Gantt & PERT diagram) appropriate management structures & procedures (project steering and control, decision making, technical management, implementation management,...) implementation & exploitation of results, users! realistic costs that lie within the budget of the Call convincing consortium (roles, qualifications)
23 Proposal Writing Plan Appoint proposal writer Write a 1-2 page proposal Circulate for comments Consortium meeting if necessary (distribution of work) Workpackages management Exploitation, etc. Compile proposal Submit proposal Review by experts
24 Proposal Writing Plan - appoint writer Appoint proposal writer Appoint proposal writer Consortium meeting if necessary (distribution of work) Workpackages management Exploitation, etc. Compile proposal Submit proposal Circulate for comments Many people and partners will be involved in the proposal writing and Write a 1-2 page will contribute with material but proposal only one should have the overall responsibility and: check proposal conformity and consistency make necessary adjustments submit the proposal And loose his sleep over the proposal Review by experts
25 Proposal Writing Plan write 1 page Write a one page proposal Appoint proposal writer Consortium meeting if necessary Circulate for comments The 1-page proposal is a working document, it describes and Write a 1-2 page explains in text the whole proposal idea that until that time was only in the mind of the coordinator. This document will clearly explain the logic/vison behind the (distribution of work) proposal and the overall aim. It will also describe the mechanism for achieving the proposal targets. Workpackages management Exploitation, etc. Clarify issues related to management, workpackages, exploitation, etc Compile proposal Guide you through the final proposal writing Review by experts Gives the opportunity to Submit the other proposal partners or colleagues to comment on the proposal and suggest improvements.
26 Proposal Writing Plan Appoint proposal writer Write a 1-2 page proposal Circulate for comments Consortium meeting if necessary (distribution of work) Workpackages management Exploitation, etc. Compile proposal Submit proposal Review by experts
27 Proposal Writing: Appearance The appearance (evaluator-friendly) of the proposal is crucially important for the overall success : It helps evaluators to easily understand the content. (remember that the evaluators have limited time to spend for each proposal) Several good proposals were buried due to poor presentation. Poor presentation also demonstrates low commitment/effort/capacity. So Use concise standard English! Make the text clear, well structured, easy to read, not wordy: add a Table of Contents use short paragraphs use bullet points to break up lists highlight key points in italics Include only relevant information Make your proposal visually attractive and inviting, using graphic devices proposal has to present a high quality product!
28 Proposal Writing: Title, Acronym Select a Self-Explanatory but also Nice & Catchy proposal Title & proposal Acronym! Examples of proposal acronyms: NEA-TASHA: Novel Evolutionary and Agent-based Techniques for Automated Safety and Hazard Analysis ADAM: Adaptation And Mitigation Strategies: Supporting European climate policy ALARM: Assessing LArge-scale environmental Risks with tested Methods AMEDEUS: Accelerate MEmbrane DEvelopment for Urban Sewage purification
29 Parts Content of a proposal Part A: FORMS A1: General info on proposal (Title, abstract, keywords, etc.) A2: Info on the coordinator and the other partners (one form per partner) Part B: CONTENT Front page Contents page proposal summary project description A3: Cost breakdown (one sheet for the whole consortium; one line per partner with information on costs and funding requests per activity

31 Background Educate the Evaluator! First tell the evaluator WHY you are doing the work! Then tell the evaluator how you are doing it. This should include facts and figures from policy documents. Ask: Why Bother? The evaluators have no (or poor) internet access during the evaluation
32 Objective/Aim A short clear description of the proposed work There should be no question after this paragraph
33 Deliverables A clear statement on what will come out of the project. The deliverable must be expressed in the words of the user.

48 Project Management/ Pert Chart The PERT (Programme Evaluation and Review Techniques) Chart describes the links between the different workpackages. The division of the work must be logical. It must demonstrate that the focus of the management is on the prompt and proper accomplishment of the workpackages and deliverables. It is good idea to have one workpackage for Coordination and Management It is also usual to have a separate workpackage for the project management Be careful Do not include all the partners in all the workpackages. This is sign of poor planning and organisation. Do not involve a partner in all the workpackages. Every partner has specific competencies and should be involved in specific tasks. Every partner in the project should have specific responsibilities for justifying their role in the proposal.
