The ‘Annotated proposal template SME Instrument ‘ is a guide created in order to assist innovative companies in applying to the EIC SME Instrument 2018-2020 call of Horizon 2020.
Its aim is to help companies better understand the requirements of the template and write better applications.
The authors of this guide are Horizon 2020 NCPs dealing daily with SME Instrument applications. Their recommendations also include feedback received from evaluators of SME Instrument proposals employed by the European Commission. The NCPs interacted with, trained and provided advice to thousands of companies that wanted to introduce their innovative product or service to market by using SME Instrument funding.
The guide should be useful for anyone who wants to submit an EIC SME Instrument related proposal.
