One of the most significant changes in the new Programming Period of Horizon Europe is that dissemination and exploitation plans are now required at the proposal stage.

Impact statements can no longer be general and theoretical. They need to demonstrate actual impact using data.

Developing a good impact section has become crucial to the success of your proposal.

For this reason, more and more coordinators include specialized partners like the FSRM in their consortium.

As partner of your new research project, the FSRM will contribute to its success by elaborating the “Impact” chapter in close collaboration with your project coordinator. Once the project is accepted, FSRM will act as WP leader to guarantee the dissemination of the project results, the communication of the project findings to the different target groups and the setting up of structures for the exploitation of the results.

Status of Switzerland in Horizon Europe:

Actually, Switzerland is not associated to Horizon Europe. However, Swiss partners are eligible for most calls. As regular project partner the FSRM will have the status of an “associated partner”. Thus, our activities will be 100% funded by the Swiss government and will not charge your project budget.
