The requirements for submitting a research proposal are detailed in the relevant call documents published on each call page. Please also consult the General Annexes of the H2020 Work Programme for 2016-2017 for general rules on funding, such as the list of countries that can apply for funding, standard eligibility criteria, submission rules, types of projects and their funding rates and other useful information. The list of associated countries can be found on the Participant Portal.
Applicants have to submit their proposal electronically, following the link from the call page on the Participant Portal. Guidelines on proposal submission are available on the relevant call page.
External evaluators of project proposals are drawn from the European Commission's independent expert database. The Commission is looking to expand the database through a call for experts covering a very broad range of fields. If you fit the expert profile rather than that of an applicant, and would like to be considered as a proposal evaluator, sign up in the Participant Portal.
Further information on transport research is available on Horizon2020 website. Please note that there might be further EU funding opportunities in transport research announced on the Participant Portal.
