The deadline for submission is 14 November 2019. Proposals will be evaluated until February 2020 and grant agreements are expected to enter into force from May 2020 onwards.
A dedicated LinkedIn group serves as an informal meeting place where public and private entities interested in creating a consortium to apply for grant funding can meet and connect. In addition, the FAQ or the helpdesk can answer further questions.
