24 participants, with academic, NGO, and private sector backgrounds, attended the summer school. They came from 18 different countries, the majority of them from the Eastern Partnership region.

The first two days of the school consisted of sessions in which participants improved their familiarity with basic concepts under Horizon 2020, such as, programme components, call types and the 2016/17 Work Programme.

In addition to the basic training, keynote speakers were invited from various Austrian agencies who shared their experience with proposal writing and conduct of H2020 funded projects as well as important concepts in energy efficiency such as life cycle cost analysis.

During the last three days, the participants worked on their proposals in four groups while receiving guidance from the trainers. These proposals were presented during the last day of the school in an interactive session.

The Summer School was co-organized between Centre for Social Innovation and TÜBITAK.
