The 2 B.I template documents were modified to highlight the fact that there is a different version of the B.I template to be used when applying for Thematic Topics vis-a-vis non-Thematic topics. This was already stated since the publication of this call call but was made even more visible with this update. No change in substance was made. The templates are in the "Additional Documents" section for each topic and can also be downloaded from the submission system.

Topic DescriptionSpecific Challenge:
The purpose of this topic is to design and develop a prototype of a long stroke piezo electric actuator with increased stroke and load capabilities. The actuator functionalities and performances will be assessed on a prototype laboratory in order to achieve a TRL4. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
Topic conditions and documents

2. Eligibility and admissibility conditions: described in the Clean Sky 2 Work Plan.
Proposal page limits and layout: Please refer to Part B of the proposal template in the submission tool below.
- Evaluation criteria, scoring and thresholds: described in the Clean Sky 2 Work Plan.

4. Indicative time for evaluation and grant agreement: maximum 8 months from the date of closure of the call.
5. Proposal templates and model grant agreements (MGA):
Proposal templates are available after entering the submission tool and in the "Additional Documents" Section below.
Model Grant Agreements are shown here:.
H2020 Clean Sky 2 JU MGA for Partners - Multi-Beneficiary
H2020 Clean Sky 2 JU MGA for Partners - Mono-Beneficiary
H2020 Annotated Grant Agreement
6. Additional provisions:
Clean Sky 2 Budget Flexibility: described in the Clean Sky 2 JU Work Plan.
Members of consortium are required to conclude a consortium agreement prior to the signature of the grant agreement.
7. 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 H2020 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. See the Online Manual.
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.
