“Integral Service for Project Funding and Management in the European Framework Programme”

Funded by the Ministry for Innovation, Science and Research of the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the INSPIRE project aims to significantly increase the competitiveness of the University of Siegen for efficient participation in “HORIZON 2020”, the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. This shall be manifested in an increased number of submitted applications on the one hand and in the improvement of the success rate on the other hand. This shall be realised by the set-up of efficient and sustainable project management structures where the scientists are supported and their workload is reduced as necessary.

The concept is based on a modular service offer tailored to the following target groups: First applicants / junior scientists, experienced applicants as partners in collaborative projects and experienced applicants as coordinators. The individual modules may be booked by scientists free of charge.


Project coordinators can book additional services within the context of Module V “Project Administration” (subject to a charge, billable via project budget). 

Get Inspired! HORIZON 2020 Mentor Programme

Get Inspired is an extension of the service provided by the Research Support Office pertaining to HORIZON 2020. The number of competitive applications shall be increased by the successive involvement of experienced EU applicants of the University of Siegen. This shall be realised by an internal Mentor Programme and the establishment of a Discussion and Document Platform. Pillars of the latter are:
Information: You receive a first overview of HORIZON 2020 and its options as well as explanatory documents and useful tools for your application.
Discussion: You can ask any questions directly in the forum and discuss them with other participants and the EU consultants.
Networking: Competitive project networks often have an interdisciplinary structure. Contact other participants to benefit from interdisciplinary networks.
