How do you begin?

  1. You have an idea or vision for a research project.

  2. Consult the rules for FP7 research.

  3. Seek out other EU partners or participants from abroad who share your vision and with which you can cooperate.

  4. Submit your application to the European Commission, according to the Call for Proposal deadlines and dedicated work programme.

  5. The European Commission guarantees proper evaluation of your submission by 3-7 independent evaluators, who are experts in that field.

  6. The Commission will notify you of the evaluation results. If they are positive, contract negotiations will begin.

  7. Contract signature and start of the project.

You can also apply to become an evaluator yourself.
