Luxinnovation is the National Contact Point (NCP) for Horizon Europe in Luxembourg and one of the partners of the Bridge2HE project that brings together NPCs all across Europe. On 21 November 2022, the Bridge2HE project held its final conference in Brussels. The hybrid event allowed the project participants to share with the national NCP coordinators present in Brussels, and the entire community connected online, what has been achieved within the project and what its legacy will be.

Accessible knowledge bank

“The Horizon Europe NCP Portal will remain the main entry point for all stakeholders to the knowledge generated in the NCP communities,” explains Stefano Pozzi Mucelli, Head of Luxinnovation’s European RDI Support team.

This knowledge base is accessible to applicants, but it can also be used to improve the skills of the support systems in all the countries participating in Horizon Europe.

During the conference, Mr Pozzi Mucelli and leader of the Bridge2HE work package dedicated to the development of tools for applicants presented the main results achieved in the project in collaboration with all the European partners. The tools developed within the project include:

  • The Horizon Europe Glossary, developed on the occasion of the launch of the Horizon Europe programme (2021-2027), which introduces readers to the key terms that they may encounter in reading the official EC documents and campaigns.
  • The Bridge2HE – Annotated Template, a guide to help applicants to the Research and Innovation Actions and Innovation Actions in Horizon Europe better understand the requirements of the template and better develop the innovation-related issues.
  • The TRL self-assessment tool, which analyses with examples the technology readiness level (TRL) of different types of solutions with the aim to help participants to have a more accurate approach in Horizon Europe projects.
  • A collection of short videos for participants related to relevant items of Horizon Europe such as lump sum, blended finance and missions.
  • And finally, FUNDED, a Horizon Europe board game, which you can download and enjoy at home.

These and several other tools are available through the Store section of the Horizon Europe NCP Portal.

“It has been a pleasure working with all our colleagues in Europe in this project, and in particular the friends in Italy and Spain who worked so hard with us to deliver all these new tools,” says Mr Pozzi Mucelli. “We hope that they will be a great resource for applicants.”
