The evaluation results (flash call info) for the COMPET calls are now available under the "Additional Documents" section.
Topic DescriptionSpecific Challenge:
Provide a one stop-shop user-friendly and visually appealing knowledge oriented project (single space web portal) for space research in Europe to act as archive and outreach tool of research institutionally funded and promote European results and publications towards professionals and citizens alike.Scope:
The aim is for this space web portal to become the main reference and entry point for European citizens and professionals interested in space research activities. The call has two main incremental goals:
- Implementation of an effective space web portal for Europe, able to point to relevant resources as required and depending on the type of queries.
- Provide a repository of all relevant information regarding FP6, FP7, Horizon 2020 funded space projects (including public deliverables, data, software tools where possible).
The space portal should act as a platform to access appropriate information on research projects leading to personalised networks of projects with common interests. It should be complementary to initiatives of NCP networks. The proposal should present a realistic plan for the sustained operations of the portal after the end of the EU-funded project period.
The Commission considers that one proposal requesting a contribution from the EU in the range of EUR 0.5 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.Expected Impact:
The centralisation of projects will allow the easy search for projects that fall under a particular domain, cluster or theme and serve as archive from a scientific and technological angle. It will also allow to identify potential partners and showcase European results and publications. It would also provide European citizens and professionals with a single entry point for space research activities related information.Cross-cutting Priorities:
Topic conditions and documents
Please read carefully all provisions below before the preparation of your application.
- List of countries and applicable rules for funding: described in part A of the General Annexes of the General Work Programme. Note also that a number of non-EU/non-Associated Countries that are not automatically eligible for funding have made specific provisions for making funding available for their participants in Horizon 2020 projects. See the information in the Online Manual and follow the links to China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, Russia, and Taiwan.
- Eligibility and admissibility conditions: described in part B and C of the General Annexes of the General Work Programme, with the following exception: considering the nature and objectives of the action, and in view of favouring wider competition and participation, the European Space Agency will not participate in consortia of proposals submitted under this call for proposals.
Proposal page limits and layout: Please refer to Part B of the standard proposal template.
3.1 Evaluation criteria and procedure, scoring and threshold: described in part H of the General Annexes of the General Work Programme.
3.2 Submission and evaluation process: Guide to the submission and evaluation process
- Indicative timetable for evaluation and grant agreement:
Information on the outcome of single-stage evaluation: maximum 5 months from the deadline for submission.
Signature of grant agreements: maximum 8 months from the deadline for submission.

- Additional provisions:
Horizon 2020 budget flexibility
Technology readiness levels (TRL) – where a topic description refers to TRL, these definitions apply.
Financial support to Third Parties – where a topic description foresees financial support to Third Parties, these provisions apply.
- Open access must be granted to all scientific publications resulting from Horizon 2020 actions.
Where relevant, proposals should also provide information on how the participants will manage the research data generated and/or collected during the project, such as details on what types of data the project will generate, whether and how this data will be exploited or made accessible for verification and re-use, and how it will be curated and preserved.
Open access to research data
The Open Research Data Pilot has been extended to cover all Horizon 2020 topics for which the submission is opened on 26 July 2016 or later. Projects funded under this topic will therefore by default provide open access to the research data they generate, except if they decide to opt-out under the conditions described in annex L of the Work Programme. Projects can opt-out at any stage, that is both before and after the grant signature.
Note that the evaluation phase proposals will not be evaluated more favourably because they plan to open or share their data, and will not be penalised for opting out.
Open research data sharing applies to the data needed to validate the results presented in scientific publications. Additionally, projects can choose to make other data available open access and need to describe their approach in a Data Management Plan.
- Projects need to create a Data Management Plan (DMP), except if they opt-out of making their research data open access. A first version of the DMP must be provided as an early deliverable within six months of the project and should be updated during the project as appropriate. The Commission already provides guidance documents, including a template for DMPs.
- Eligibility of costs: costs related to data management and data sharing are eligible for reimbursement during the project duration.
The legal requirements for projects participating in this pilot are in the article 29.3 of the Model Grant Agreement.
