Welcome to the Science Summit at UNGA76, a major contribution to advancing Science for the UN SDGs. Online from 14- September - 5 October 2021.
ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA76) in September 2021. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building. Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.
Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

How to Write a Competitive Proposal for EU Funding Programmes
UN Summit 16th and 23rd September 2021
 Dr. Seán McCarthy Hyperion Ltd (www.hyperion.ie)

European Funding Programmes are one of the instruments used by the European Union to implement EU Policies. In the current funding period (2021-2027) there are over 30 funding programmmes – and each of these is divided into sub-programmes.

This workshop will address the following

1. Overview of EU Funding Programmes
This module provides and overview of the funding programmes with particular focus on opportunities for International Cooperation.

2. Overview of Horizon Europe
A quick overview of Horizon Europe will be presented. This will identify opportunities for International organisations. This section will also demonstrate how the UN Sustainable Development are used to define research topics in Horizon Europe
3. Strategic Networking at a European Level
Projects funded in European programmes typically involve a consortium of partners. This section describes how a consortium is structured, the different roles in a consortium and opportunities for newcomers to participate in funded project. The finals sections will provided advice on how to network strategically at a European level.
4. How Horizon Europe proposals are evaluated
In any funding programme it is critical to understand the evaluation process used. It is also important to understand the profile of the evaluators of proposals. The best way to understand this process is to become an evaluator. These issues will be presented in this section.
5. Guideline for Writing Horizon Europe proposals
Proposals are written to convince the evaluators on the merits of the ideas. This section describes how the evaluation process described in section 4 can be used as a template to screen and prepare competitive proposals.
