Should I prepare myself for the meeting?

How high are my chances at success?

This is dependent on three main factors:

Funding programme; Not every topic from every funding programme has the same chances of success, this depends on the number of applicants and the funds available.Competition; Some topics are more competitive than others, so your project needs to stand out more to be eligible for funding.Project; innovative ideas and a clean and structured project presentation increase your chances at success, accelopment can help you achieve this goal.

How much effort is a EU-project application?

The funding programme and your role within the project determin your effort. Normally, an average effort of 2-6 weeks is to be expected for a project application.

How much funding will I receive?

This cannot be determined in general. The amount results from the effective project costs, the funding quota and the funding programme. Depending on the funding programme, the funding rate is often between 50% and 100% of the project-related costs.

Who owns the project results?

The project results belong to the partner who developed them. In the case of cooperation between the partners, a contractual agreement is made individually. The EU is not entitled to your results.

Mainly research and development. The main investments are personnel and material costs, as well as depreciation on used machinery. The subsidies are not used to pay out wage increases or to purchase new equipment.
