Success in Horizon 2020 is about winning individual proposals. To write a competitive proposal researchers need four main criteria: excellent research; excellent partners; an understanding of the concept of ‘impact’; and support on the rules and procedures. Researchers are responsible for the excellence of their projects. The role of PrimeUCC is to support the researcher in selecting partners, writing the impact statement and dealing with the rules and procedures. PrimeUCC and the UCC Research Support Office provide researchers in UCC with a unique set of services. UCC has the opportunity to become a model for research support services in Europe.
