  47. 47. 1. Scientific and technical quality, relevant to the topics addressed by the call (1/2)  Justify that our idea meets the corresponding Work Programme (WP), indicating particularly in which subtopic.  Explain why the project needs to be done: which problem needs a solution?  Always quantify objectives. These can be classified in three types: scientific, technological and operational.  The description of the SoA has to be technical, professional and unbiased. Make reference whenever possible to articles, patents and finished projects.  The comparison between our idea and the SoA previously explained has to be well argued. It is recommended to include a table of strengths/weaknesses of each technology. Jornada FP7 Training – STRD Project––memòries de projectes2010 ACTec: Introducció a–la redacció de Amman 9-14 9-14 May d'R+D+i FP7 Training STRD Project Amman May 2010 www.lavic.cat
  48. 48. 1. Scientific and technical quality, relevant to the topics addressed by the call (2/2)  Before describing the different work packages (WP),it is necessary to establish a general strategy. For example, describe the general phases of the project, state that each WP will have a responsible technician and tasks will be divided following certain criterias, explain how information is transferred from one WP to another.  Diagrams relating to each different WP are essential. It is important to be clear.  It is necessary to do realistic WP relating to the duration of the project. Each WP should have deliverables and milestones clearly identified.  Be sure to explain the contingency plans. What happens if an intermediate target is not met? Mention alternatives, quantify the level of risk. Jornada FP7 Training – STRD Project––memòries de projectes2010 ACTec: Introducció a–la redacció de Amman 9-14 9-14 May d'R+D+i FP7 Training STRD Project Amman May 2010 www.lavic.cat
  49. 49. 2. Implementation (1/3)  An experienced coordinator is always important, but not essential.  Even in large projects, a complex management structure is not recommended (do not create unnecessary committees that are not credible). Even though, the decisions shouldn’t only fall on the coordinator.  It is worth to mention previous agreements that partners could already have; for example, who is responsible of each task: administrative leader (the coordinator), the technical leader, the responsible for the intellectual property, etc.  It is necessary to describe correctly the communications and its frequency (meeting, call-conferences, report interns, etc). Jornada FP7 Training – STRD Project––memòries de projectes2010 ACTec: Introducció a–la redacció de Amman 9-14 9-14 May d'R+D+i FP7 Training STRD Project Amman May 2010 www.lavic.cat
  50. 50. 2. Implementation (2/3)  In the description of each applicant we still do not talk about synergies, but we describe “who is who”. The motivation of this entity to participate in the project has to be described clearly.  The CV’s are important, select minimum two per participant, with 5 lines each. If the profiles are more scientific, mention publications/patents.  While talking about the consortium, make sure that there are no direct competitors and no repeated roles between members. Highlight the synergies. Mention if partners have worked together before.  Depending on the call and sector, highlight the name of SMEs or partner of a particular region that are inscribed.  The consortium has to be able to manage the project as well to exploit the results. Don’t forget the business! Jornada FP7 Training – STRD Project––memòries de projectes2010 ACTec: Introducció a–la redacció de Amman 9-14 9-14 May d'R+D+i FP7 Training STRD Project Amman May 2010 www.lavic.cat
  51. 51. 2. Implementation (3/3)  Resources is one of the most difficult part and has to be done when the budget is finished. 1. Justify the overall costs of the budget. 2. Justify all cost details, by categories. Provide realistic data. 3. Explain the way of financing of the funding that is not covered by public resources (partners’ own efforts, national programmes and complementary regional, etc.) Jornada FP7 Training – STRD Project––memòries de projectes2010 ACTec: Introducció a–la redacció de Amman 9-14 9-14 May d'R+D+i FP7 Training STRD Project Amman May 2010 www.lavic.cat
  52. 52. 3. Impact (1/2)  As the objectives, all impacts have to be quantified. Saying “this project will have a positive effect on the environment” is not enough at all.  While giving data, justify them making references to studies and publications. It is important that impacts are credible.  Is important to mention R+D projects at National or European level in the same technological line, or that cope with the same need applying another technology. Jornada FP7 Training – STRD Project––memòries de projectes2010 ACTec: Introducció a–la redacció de Amman 9-14 9-14 May d'R+D+i FP7 Training STRD Project Amman May 2010 www.lavic.cat
  53. 53. 3. Impact (2/2)  Depending on the type of project, the exploitation and dissemination of results could be a critical section.  Is important to include a good intellectual protection plan, including technological monitoring tasks.  Define clearly the exploitation in the proposal, although it could be sometimes far away. Imagination is necessary!  The dissemination, if required in this call, has to be very quantified.
