Research Enquiry Service and Participant Validation

Ask your questions about any aspect of European research in general and about the validation process of legal entities.

Do you have a question about the EU's main research funding instruments? Do you have a question about the validation of your Participant Identification Code (PIC) or Legal Entity Appointed Representative (LEAR)?

The Research Enquiry Service will reply to your question on calls for proposals for H2020 and other research funding programmes. Since January 2018 our service will also reply to enquiries on the legal validation and the preparation of the financial capacity assessment related to all European Commission grants and procurements under direct management.

Please use the form below to submit your question. You can also check our FAQs for more information.

If your question is about a call for proposals, please submit your query at least two weeks before the respective call deadline, to allow us enough time to answer.

The Service does not provide help on the use of the IT systems of the Participant Portal, e.g. forgotten passwords, access rights and roles, technical aspects of submission of proposals or reports etc. For such questions please contact the IT helpdesk.
