The main focus of the summer school was on providing the participants with insights about H2020 funding opportunities, proposal writing and international project management.

The first two days of the school consisted of sessions in which participants improved their familiarity with basic concepts under Horizon 2020, such as, programme components, call types and the 2016/17 Work Programme.

In addition to the basic training, keynote speakers were invited from various Austrian agencies who shared their experience with proposal writing and conduct of H2020 funded projects as well as important concepts in energy efficiency such as life cycle cost analysis.

During the last three days, the participants worked on their proposals in four groups while receiving guidance from the trainers. These proposals were presented during the last day of the school in an interactive session.
