Applicant's registration (e-Calls PADOR)

Applicant's registration (e-Calls PADOR)


What is e-Calls PADOR?

The Potential Applicant Data On-Line Registration (PADOR) is the on-line system in which organisations, who are potential applicants to calls for proposals, register and update regularly information about their profile (legal, financial etc). The information registered in PADOR is used by the European Commission during the evaluation of applications as well as for checking the eligibility of the organisations that participate to calls for proposals.

Every organisation in e-Calls PADOR has a unique identification number (EuropeAid ID - EID). The organisation must enter this EID in their application in e-Calls PROSPECT (IT system for online submission) when submitting it for a call.

e-Calls PADOR (organisation registration) and e-Calls PROSPECT (application submission) are the two online systems that simplify the process of applying to calls for proposals.
