Attention - Re-launch of Partner Search Tool October 2017

In view of the European Commission launching new Horizon 2020 work programmes for 2018-2020 - the partner search service of the Horizon 2020 NCP network projects NMP TeAm, NCPs CaRE and C-Energy 2020 have improved their services for you! These entail the following and will be effective from 26 October 2020 onwards:

  • Common registration level for the three activities. This will allow registered users to enter partner searches and offers on call topics of all the activities. Which means, that a registrant only needs to fill in his/her profile once and can still chose the specific database of interest.
  • Topic specific deadlines to avoid entries on already closed calls for proposals.
  • General overhaul of the tool
