What you need to know about H2020 Calls

Most of the Horizon 2020 calls are divided into topics. When entering a call page on the Participant Portal, you see the list of all the topics that belong to this call. After clicking on a topic link, you arrive at a topic page. When searching with free keywords on Search topics page, the result is a list of topics of open calls, and when you click on a topic title, you arrive on the topic page.

Register in the Participant Register 

If you want to participate in a project proposal, your organisation needs to be registered in the Participant Register of the Participant Portal and have a 9-digit Participant Identification Code (PIC).

You can verify whether your organisation is already registered and has a PIC on the Participant Portal ‘Participant Register‘ page. If not, you can start the registration process on the same page and, once completed, get the PIC to be quoted in your proposal and in any correspondence with the Commission.

Get Prepared 

Before you can start writing your proposal, you will have to find a call, select partners and plan your project. Get some more information here.

National Contact Points

The network of National Contact Points (NCPs) is the main structure to provide guidance, practical information and assistance on all aspects of participation in Horizon 2020. NCPs are also established in many non-EU and non-associated countries (“third countries”).
