How to Participate in H2020?

General Features
The European Commission adopted open calls as the basic participation mode for H2020. Calls for proposals are set out in the H2020 work programme available on the Participant Portal. The Participant Portal is the entry point for electronic administration of EU-funded research and innovation projects, and hosts the services for managing proposals and projects throughout their lifecycle.

All calls can be found in the EU’s Official Journal – the official source for all EU documents – as well as on the Participant Portal

International Cooperation
Horizon 2020 is open to the participation of third countries, including Chile. In all of the relevant parts of Horizon 2020, topics have been flagged as being particularly suitable for international cooperation and consortia are encouraged to include third country partners. In these cases, the area selected for cooperation is specified upfront and consortia are encouraged to include third country partners (in many cases particular countries or regions are targeted) in their consortia. The list of flagged international cooperation topics can be found in the Topics page for international cooperation.
