Frequently asked questions
What should I expect?
The proposal idea check service is a ~20 minute session with a National Contact Point (not necessarily from your country). It is designed to offer advice on your project idea, especially whether it is in the scope of the call topic you chose, and suggest alternatives if it isn’t (and if there is another relevant open call topic available). It will also highlight further information and tools to help you build a consortium and prepare a proposal according to the call topic requirements.
I can’t find a topic to fit my idea
Finding a topic that perfectly fits your project idea like a glove fits a hand is actually pretty rare. You should look for a topic where you can leverage your field of expertise within a project that directly addresses the requirements of the call.
I think I found a topic, but I am not sure
Then this service is exactly for you! Filling out the pre-proposal form will help structure your thoughts about your project idea and will prepare you for the session. After you fill-out the form and upload it, we will schedule a session with an experienced NCP to consult you about your project idea and assess how well it really addresses the challenge and scope of the call.
I have my idea perfectly organised in my head, why do I have to fill out a form?
In order to offer good advice, we have to be prepared. Reading your idea and getting all the information ahead will help us help you!
When will you book me a session?
After we get the Proposal Idea Check forms and all the availability constraints of both proposers and NCPs, we will build a schedule. You will be informed via mail and/or the B2match system a few days ahead*.
*In case the demand for this service is higher than the number of sessions available, we will prioritise applicants who completed registration (filled out the form and uploaded it) earlier and inform the others of further options for proposal idea checks after the event
