Double-checking your figures

Hello,

You referred us earlier to a web page where it said you received 62 INSO-10-2015 phase 2 proposals. It says in the infographic above that you received 147 of them...

Could you possibly double-check your figures?

Many thanks,

Catherine

    Figures of submitted proposals

    Hi Marie

    So which is the right figure of submitted phase 2 proposals under INSO-10-2015? 62 or 147? That makes a huge difference...

    Thanks for clarifying,
    Catherine

    Results

    Hello! When you mention that results are expected in January, are you referring to phase 1 or phase 2? Some weeks ago I think you mentioned that results will take longer this time and you were not guaranting the possibility of resubmissions. Is this still valid? In other words: will results of phase 2 arrive BEFORE or AFTER 3rd February 2016?

    Results

    We believe that both phases will be sent in January, however, we can not guarantee this. We have
    changed the evaluation rhythm: the evaluation of the phases is decoupled (first Phase 2, then Phase 1). This MIGHT cause that Phase 2 applicants will not receive their results before the February 2016 cut-off. However, we are doing are best to deliver the results in January.

    benchmarking submissions to previous years

    Hello,
    Is there somewhere to compare the number of submissions and the expected number of succesfull proposals per topic on the November 2015 deadline compared to previous ones?
    Thank you in advance!

    we don't have such a statistics. You can find the number of submissions of the November cut-off here: https://ec.europa.eu/easme/en/news/sme-instrument-3146-projects-ask-funding

    However, the results haven't been published yet.
