We are delighted to offer INHWE Members an exciting opportunity to support you with developing your research idea into an outstanding Erasmus+ proposal for the forthcoming March 2022 deadline.

In order to support your work, we have teamed up with The European Researcher (an organisation specialising in research grants across Europe) to secure five Strategic Grant Reviews free of charge for our members. Strategic Grant Reviews involve your research proposal being read by an experienced research grant specialist, who gives you targeted feedback and support for submitting a proposal of the highest possible quality. In addition to this, INHWE is also offering to support proposals by assisting with consortium building and proposal management.

How to apply: If have an idea for the upcoming Erasmus+ deadline and would like your proposal to benefit from this valuable offer, we invite you to apply for this opportunity by submitting your brief project outline to INHWE by 12 January 2022 via the following page: 

Selection: INHWE and The European Researcher will select the five successful submissions which show the most promise and notify participants before 14 January 2022. After this selection INHWE will support you with meeting the deadlines below and building your project consortium.

First Round Review: You must submit a full draft by Monday 14 February. Dr. Natalie Papanastasiou from The European Researcher will review every section of your draft proposal. Part of this review will involve assessing the project’s key arguments, methodology, and overall framing to ensure that the ‘big picture’ of the proposal is exactly right. Natalie will provide detailed written feedback and recommendations, as well as a Zoom call to discuss this feedback in depth.

Second Round Review: A reviewed version of the draft proposal must be submitted before Monday 7 March 2022. Natalie will once again review your draft and provide recommendations that focus on ensuring that all parts of the proposal are connected, and that there is a consistent narrative throughout. She provides written feedback and offers a further Zoom call with you if necessary.

Final Submission: Submission must be made via the Erasmus+ portal before Wednesday 23 March and is the sole responsibility of the applicant.

If you would like to apply, you will need to satisfy the following eligibility criteria:

  1. Be eligible to apply for an Erasmus+ grant:
  2. Be a member of INHWE (you can sign up for free here if you aren’t yet a member of our network).
  3. Be prepared to lead the project consortium and submit to your national agency (or have a suitable organisation in mind to substitute for you).
  4. Include INHWE in the project consortium.
  5. Submit a proposal on the broad theme of education/training of healthcare professionals.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact David Smith via email and please feel free to share this with any colleagues who might be interested. We look forward to receiving your applications!
