Call updates (14/06/2016):


As part of the Panel Review, Hearings will be organised for Innovation Actions (IA) proposals.

For this call, hearings will be conducted by a written procedure.

Invitations to hearings will be sent only to the coordinators of proposals with consensus scores above the individual thresholds.

It is expected the coordinators to receive the hearing questions by 24/06/2016 with a deadline to provide a written reply by 28/06/2016.

Hearings should not be used to modify proposals. The coordinators may only provide explanations and clarifications in response to questions submitted.

Providing written reply for the hearings is not mandatory, but strongly recommended. Original submitted proposal is still the basis for final evaluation.
