How to submit your project?
You can submit your project online in one of the official languages of the European Union by using the EIPP feature.
In order to ease the validation process of your application, it is highly recommended to submit it in English.
For projects submitted in a language other than English, the European Commission will provide a free translation of your application in English which will also appear on the Portal along with the original version.
4 STEPS to submit a project to the Portal
1. Complete your user profile
To complete your project application, please fill in all the necessary information needed for the user profile. This step is requested to be able to proceed with the next steps as shown in the picture below.
2. Declare your organisation
To create your organisation, please enter your organisation name, as well as organisation and administrative details.
If you are a consultant working for several organisations, you can create your clients’ organisations and manage their projects. You can consult the list of all your organisations under the tab "My organisation(s)".
3. Create your project
To create a project, fill in the sections: project description, project financing, web links, map view and contact.
4. Submit your project
To submit your project, please make sure that you have filled in all mandatory fields and clicked on the button "submit".
As a final step, click on the button "confirm".
All projects which you have created, no matter their status, are visible under "My project(s)".
Please be aware that you need to submit the appointment letter of the Project Appointed Representative (P.A.R.) before the final publication of the project.
What happens to your project after submission?
Once you have submitted your project, the EIPP team starts the screening process.
In the process of screening, you might be asked to provide additional information (e.g. updates, confirmations, documents etc.). Supporting documents can be uploaded for both organisation and project in the relevant sections.
Invitations of members
If you are the first individual who has submitted an application for your organisation, you will cover the role of "organisation contributor". Additional members of the organisation can be invited using the appropriate button. New members will receive an email allowing them to log in to the Portal. Organisation members can, among other things, submit new projects or consult saved data.
You can also invite persons to read about your project. An invitation will be sent by email containing a login link. A project reader has a read only access to the specific project.
Publication of your project
Once the screening process is finalised and your project is ready to be published, the EIPP team will inform you about the publication and further steps, if necessary.
To be admitted for publication on the Portal, your project (or the programme consisting of smaller projects) must
