IMPART project host masterclass for delegates on successful funding bids

IMPART, the East Midlands Intelligent Mobility Partnership, is hosting a Horizon 2020 masterclass to teach delegates about successful funding bids next month. 

The IMPART project, which Loughborough University is a part of, is sharing their skills to help delegates realise the potential of Horizon 2020 funding and will also provide practical advice workshops from industry specialists on how to write a successful bid. 

IMPART formed last year after Loughborough was awarded a contract to support the Transport Systems Catapult’s work alongside Nottingham Trent, De Montfort and Coventry University.  The project, led by Loughborough, is aiming to promote research and business innovation in the area of Intelligent Mobility.

Next month’s masterclass will also help attendees understand what evaluators are looking for and give them advanced insight into transport calls going live in 2015. A question and answer session with the transport national contact from Innovate UK, Louise Mothersole, will also take place. 

Attendees will understand the competitive application process and what it takes to be able to build a strong consortium and increase the chances of success.

The event takes place on Wednesday 1 July at Burleigh Court, Loughborough, LE11 3GR and will run from 10am – 4 pm. It is free to attend but registration is required.
