Do you have a question about the EU's main research funding instruments? Do you have a question about the validation of your Participant Identification Code (PIC) or Legal Entity Appointed Representative (LEAR)?

The Research Enquiry Service will reply to your question on calls for proposals for H2020 and other research funding programmes. Since January 2018 our service will also reply to enquiries on the legal validation and the preparation of the financial capacity assessment related to all European Commission grants and procurements under direct management.

In addition, you can also report to us divergences of implementation across H2020 or FP7 grants.

Please use the form below to submit your question. You can also check our FAQs for more information.

If your question is about a call for proposals, please submit your query at least two weeks before the respective call deadline to allow us enough time to answer.

The Service does not provide help on the use of the IT systems of the Funding and tender opportunities site (previously the "Participant Portal", e.g. forgotten passwords, access rights and roles, technical aspects of submission of proposals or reports etc. For such questions please contact the IT helpdesk.
