2 Home pageThis is the home page of the new more ergonomic and user-friendly Participant Portal. (It does not include yet H2020 information because we thought of going public with it well before the launch of the first H2020 calls, but we could update it with the H2020 information before the Cabinet meeting though)
3 H2020 - Electronic management of documentation, proposals and grants Participant Portal as single gatewayNew ways of presenting callsNew ways of presenting documentation and guidanceNew integrated grant management moduleNo more blue ink signatures
4 Horizon 2020 Participant Portal – the new call service Finding funding opportunities: how does it work?
5 Funding opportunities landing page CallsHorizon 2020COSMESearch TopicsCall UpdatesOther Funding OpportunitiesHorizon 2020COSMEHorizon 2020 is the new EU funding programme for research and innovation running from 2014 to with a €70 billion budget. The first calls for proposals for Horizon 2020 are envisaged for December Its simplified rules and submission and grant management tools should facilitate participants' tasks. For practical guidance, see the H2020 Funding Guide.H2020 supports SMEs with a new instrument that runs throughout various funded research and innovation fields, so it should be easy for SMEs to find opportunities in many calls.H2020 also aims to enhance EU international research cooperation so there are more opportunities for Third Country participation.Having built H2020 around the main societal challenges like an ageing population, food security, energy efficiency, the EU attaches high importance to embed socio-economic sciences and humanities into the work programme.Another important priority of the Commission is to ensure gender is embedded in the design of Horizon project proposals.Programme for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and SMEs (COSME) will run from to 2020, with a planned budget of €2.3bn. It will facilitate SME access to finance, create supportive environment for business creation, help small businesses operate outside their home countries and improve their access to markets.Previous Framework Programmes (FP7 & CIP)Other callsThis page lists additional research activities, initiatives executed by several Member States or joint programmes, co-funded calls, thematic opportunities, and intergovernmental actions.This is the Funding Opportunities landing page. The text gives a short overview of the information that a user can find in this section and some priority highlights of H When clicking, for instance, on the link "SME instrument" in the text, a user will access directly a specific page with all the related topics of open calls.The left hand menu gives targeted entry points both for old and new users: the experienced user finds an opportunity to go directly to the calls of specific parts of H2020, and the new user can click on "Search topics" and search funding opportunities just with free keywords, without having to know the structure of the programme.Call updatesThe page displays the latest updates to the calls, like change of deadlines.SearchThe call search tool has several filtering options to help you select funding opportunities that are most relevant to your activities.Stay informedFP7 and CIP – previous programmesRSS feed iCal notification FP7 and CIP are previous instruments to fund research and innovation activities in Europe for the period to You can view closed calls information of these programmes.

11 Horizon 2020 calls – Topic details: topic description F U N D I N G G U I D EHorizon 2020COSMECall: Water innovation: boosting its value for EuropeTopic: Bridging the gap from innovative water solutions to market replicationWATER 1 – 2014/2015Search TopicsCall UpdatesTopic DescriptionTopic ConditionsCall DocumentsSubmission ServiceOther Funding OpportunitiesSpecific challenge: One of the main factors hampering the market uptake of innovative solutions in the field of water is the lack of real scale demonstration of their long term viability. In addition, highly promising and advanced eco-innovative water technologies, processes, products and services often do not reach the market due to pre-commercialisation challenges and the residual risk linked to scaling-up. The first Strategic Implementation Plan of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Water has identified as priority areas: water reuse and recycling; water and wastewater treatment, including recovery of resources; water and energy integration; flood and drought risk management; and the role of ecosystem services in the provision of water related services.Scope: Actions should address one or more of the following:demonstration/pilot activities of new or improved innovative water solutions (technologies, processes, products and/or services) in a real environmentthe first application and market replication of near commercial water solutions.They should focus on the priorities identified in the first Strategic Implementation Plan of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Water, and/or helping process industries become less water dependant while ensuring efficient management of other resources (e.g. raw materials and energy), and/or exploiting untapped potential of ICT by developing and deploying advanced ICT solutions for water resources management in agriculture and urban areas.Expected impact: Wide and fast deployment of eco-innovation in the water sector in line with the priority areas of the EIP 'Water'. Support to the objectives of the Sustainable Process Industries Public-private Partnership (SPIRE PPP), in particular helping process industries to view water as a highly valuable asset rather than a consumable. Market penetration, long-term application and sustained use of successful solutions by various end-users, and creation of new market opportunities both inside and outside Europe. Increased resource efficiency and environmental performance of the water sector, through synergies between public water authorities, water utilities, various economic sectors, big companies, SMEs and research organisations.Type of action: Innovation actions (70%)Previous Framework Programmes (FP7 & CIP)This is the topic details page presenting all information necessary to prepare a proposal for the topic (specific challenge, scope of projects and their expected impact).The button Call Documents takes you back to the Call page – section Call Documents that is the information package, including submission rules and guide for applicants among other key documents for proposals.

14 Search topics – Topics for Gender CallsTOPICS FOR GENDERF U N D I N G G U I D EHorizon 2020An in-depth understanding of men and women’s needs, behaviours and attitudes contributes to improve the scientific quality and societal relevance of the produced knowledge, technology and/or innovation. It also leads to produce goods and services better suited to potential markets.Applicants are encouraged to develop a gender dimension in their projects whenever relevant. A topic is considered gender relevant when it concerns individuals of groups of persons and/or when its findings may affect individuals or groups.COSMESearch TopicsCall UpdatesOther Funding OpportunitiesTopic: MG 6 – 2014: Integrated approach towards safety of Vulnerable Road UsersPowered-two-wheelers and non-motorised transport, present a range of economic, environmental and societal opportunities. They are very well placed to address Europe's challenges of climate change and congestion. At the same time, pedestrians, cyclists, motorbike riders also represent a serious safety concern.

The same service is provided for the SME instrument etc., so that these horizontal priorities, while embedded in the individual calls, can at the same time be presented to the users as "virtual" single calls.Topic: SFS : Diet and mental healthImpulsivity and compulsivity disorders lead to individuals no longer being able to integrate into their social environment. As such, these disorders are a growing threat to individuals, families and societies as a whole. Antisocial behaviour can have an important negative impact, e.g. in schools and at the workplace.
