Eligibility of applicants and consortia
Since at most one project will be selected per topic, proposals are encouraged to make the best use of these budgets and in particular to involve partners for all funding organisations participating in the topic.
Research groups or private partners performing research who are not eligible to receive funding by any organisation participating in the call but who are willing to collaborate and contribute to the proposed project may be part of a consortium if they are able to secure their own funding.
The coordinator must be a partner funded by an organisation participating in the call.
Evaluation and selection
Eligible proposals are assessed by an independent international Scientific Evaluation Panel (SEP). If needed, based on the number of submitted proposals and their technical content, the evaluation can involve external reviewers.
