    Do you mind posting the list of beneficiaries as CSV or TDV? Not easy to extract any stats from a PDF. Eg how many ODI proposals won in Cutoff3?

    The link is broken... any chance to have access to the data sets? They must be public, as this is public money

    Dear John, this is the temporary technical problem, it will be fixed asap. Meanwhile you can have a look at the CORDIS website where you can download data in CSV

    The available data provides information on the number of applications to Phase 1 and Phase 2 per country. Is it possible to find the number of applications per region (I am particularly interested in data for Poland)?

  • martizr's picture

    Unfortunately this information in not available as applicants are not asked to mention their region. We only have country and city.

    Thank you for replying. The city of the applicant would also be enough to determine the region. Is it then possible to have the data for applicants for Poland?

  • martizr's picture

    This information is available on the statistics page: https://ec.europa.eu/easme/en/statistics-sme-instrument

    Yes, the information available concerns the number of applications from each country, but nothing more specific. The data that interests me most are the names of applicants (not beneficiaries) from cities in Poland. Is it possible?

  • martizr's picture

    No it's not possible, this information is confidential.

    Hello, is it possible to know what percentage of SME instrument proposals & winners involve more than 1 SME? Thanks.

  • faturma's picture

    Dear Jenny, it is around 7% per Phase 1 and 17% per Phase 2 (both proposals and winners).
    Best, Marie @EASME
