Applicant's registration (PADOR)

Applicant's registration (PADOR)

Potential Applicant Data On-Line Registration (PADOR) is an on-line database in which organisations register as potential applicants to calls. Organisations are invited to regularly update their information, and EuropeAid uses it to evaluate their operational and financial capacity, as well as their eligibility to participate in calls for proposals.

PADOR eases the application process for organisations, as they are not obliged to re-submit this information separately each time they participate in a call. They simply indicate their unique identification number, called EuropeAid ID (PADOR number), in their application forms.
