Funding opportunities from Horizon 2020
Through the Horizon 2020 participant portal, you can find out more about open calls for funding grants for your research or innovation projects.
The Participant portal from Horizon 2020 enables you to find funding grants for your research or innovation projects, submit your proposal and manage the project in one place.
Find a call - The Commission publishes all the calls for its research and innovation programmes H2020 on the Participant Portal. Search the portal to find current funding calls. Note: You can search calls from previous programmes.
Find Partners - Most of the EU funded projects are collaborative projects with at least 3 organisations from different EU Member States or Associated countries. Use the available partner search services help you to find organisations that would like to participate in the proposals.
Create and account - if you find and would like to respond to a call with a proposal, you'll need to create an account register your business to receive a unique identifier.
Submit your proposal - when you have your proposal, you'll be able to submit via the portal and manage the project.
Post Deadline - proposals are evaluated by a panel of independent specialists in their fields. The panel checks each proposal against a list of criteria to see if it should receive funding.
Grant agreement - once a proposal passes the evaluation stage applicants are informed about the outcome. If successful a grant agreement is drawn up detailing project activities and obligations must be signed within 3 months.
If you apply for the first time, it is useful to read the H2020 Online Manual first. You'll find step by step instructions, FAQ's and downloads to help you to get prepared. You can also contact the support service for further assistance all before the point of registration.
