1 Research and Innovation Participant Portal for Horizon 2020 Dr. Raimund BröchlerINTRASOFT Intl.Research & Innovation
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 New ways for finding funding opportunities in calls
4 Funding opportunities landing page 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.
5 Horizon 2020 callsThis is the H2020 Calls page. The Calls are presented as clickable "cards" that lead to the call details. When landing on the page the user will see all the open calls in the order of their publishing dates, but he or she has also the possibility to see forthcoming and open calls when filtering accordingly. The user can also filter calls by programmes and themes.

In addition, the users can also access topics with predefined horizontal priorities for easy access to all topics involving the SME instrument, international cooperation opportunities, gender issues, etc. Each item will have a "tool tip" that explains it shortly, e.g. KETs including advanced manufacturing technologies, photonics, nanotechnologies, advanced materials, micro/nanoelectronics, and biotechnology.Stay informedRSS feed iCal notification

9 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.

12 Search topics – Topics for SME Instrument (Support menu) CallsTOPICS FOR SME INTRUMENTF U N D I N G G U I D EHorizon 2020The SME instrument has been designed specifically for single or groups of highly innovative SMEs with international ambitions, determined to turn strong, innovative business ideas into winners on the market. The instrument provides full-cycle business innovation support from the stage of business idea conception and planning (phase I) over business plan execution and demonstration (phase II) to commercialisation (phase III).COSMESMESearch TopicsCall UpdatesTopic: INNOSUP 1 – 2015: Cluster animated projects for new industrial value chainsThe challenge is to develop new cross-sectoral industrial value chains across Europe, by building upon the innovation potential of SMEs. Europe needs to support the development of emerging industries, which will provide the growth and employment of the future. The reindustrialisation of Europe has to focus on the development of long-term internationally competitive goods and services that require combining different competences and innovative solutions. The development of new industrial value chains calls for the collaboration and integration of different innovation actors, including large enterprises and especially SMEs, across different sectors towards the implementation of a joint vision.
