Identifying the right collaborators for your research project is an important step in the process but it can be difficult to know where to begin. The following services are one possible route for finding partners with strengths that relate to and complement your own interests. 

Be aware that a strong application needs to provide evidence of a good working relationship between the partners and a convincing case for how the different skills and capabilities can be brought together to effectively address the objectives. 

EC Participant Portal

Horizon Europe and Horizon 2020 calls, supporting information and application guidance are available through the EC Participant Portal. This is the online application service and usefully brings together calls, documentation and the application process. It also allows you to search for potential partners.

Access to the Participant Portal requires prior registration via ECAS – the European Commission Authentication Service.
