Steps to consider 

  • Approach National Contact Points and use the Horizon2020 Participant Portal to find information on funding schemes, application processes and project management.
  • Check your internal strategy before planning and implementing your activities in a research project.
  • Be aware that not all proposals will be selected and that the development stage of your proposal will not be funded.
  • Have necessary administrative information of your organization (e. g. description of your NSB/NC, project staff CVs, budget/overhead considerations) to hand.
  • Be aware that there are several modes of participation in European research projects: e.g. as a partner (with a specific partner role), or as a subcontractor.
