The second project Training for trainers workshop was held in Amman
on 7, 8 April in order to introduce Jordanian Researchers to the
Horizon 2020 framework programme opportunities.
Drawing on expertise from Spanish and Austrian institutions as well
as the host institution (NCRD), the workshop hosted 5 experts from
the EU and 24 experts from Jordan.
The themes addressed during the event were:
• General opportunities in Energy Research in H2020
• Opportunities in Energy Efficiency
• Opportunities in PV and Solar Thermal
The second part of the workshop was divided into a clinic session
and a working session exercise. In the clinic session, EU experts
advised Jordanian researchers on their research proposals. The
asked ahead of the workshop to prepare and bring their proposals. In
the working session, Jordanian researchers were provided an example
of a specific call for proposal and interest by an EU partner.
Researchers were then asked to prepare a one page summary to include
their research interests and contribution. This summary must be
written in an “EU-friendly” way, including project terminologies.
