As summer heats up in Europe, many are basking in the sun, enjoying a well-deserved break. However, for coordinators of consortia gearing up for the Horizon Europe 2024 call round in the Health pillar, there’s no time to cool off. They are hard at work, connecting to partners who are on a holiday break, drafting project plans, and translating these into competitive stage 1 proposals. All within a mere 10 pages focused on Excellence and Impact.

The challenge is clear – impressing evaluators and demonstrating how their ideas and workplans will contribute to the desired outcomes and impact for the call. My tip for the writing of the project’s pathways to impact: use the impact canvas from the stage 2 proposal as your starting point. Though the stage 1 template may not reference it, this approach will set you on the right track, helping you define precise objectives, work packages, and results.
