On 16th October 2018 it was launched the 2nd group of Horizon 2020 calls for proposals for 2019 concerning several topics (ICT, Energy-efficient Buildings, Rural Renaissance, etc.). As usual, some topics are in single stage while others are in double stage: the majority of first stage’s deadline is in the 2nd half of January 2019 and the second one in September 2019. In this case the access to Stage 2 is allowed only to proposals that were positively evaluated in Stage 1.
As in 2018, also in 2019 there will be 3 cut-off dates for the Fast Track to Innovation scheme and 4 cut-off dates each for Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the SME Instrument scheme.
We have already added these new calls’ deadlines to our Events section for you to plan ahead activities in your company. We remind you that calls for proposals are divided in three categories: RIA (Research and Innovation Actions) 100%-funded, IA (Innovation Actions) 70%-funded, CSA (Coordination and Support Actions) 100%-funded.
In our section you see Professional events and calls deadlines in calendar order, but you can search for events either by location or sector. When choosing “Sectors” and selecting “deadline” you will find all Calls for proposals listed and realise how many funding opportunities are currently available for your participation.
If you need any help about understanding what this means, what is required to take part in Horizon 2020 proposals, how you could find partners abroad, which call for proposal fits better in your organisation and its expansion plans, feel free to get in touch: we look forward to talking to you!
