Writing and submitting the project proposal

Submitting a high-quality project proposal is the most important step for your Horizon Europe project. In this section you can read where the templates for project proposals can be found and what are its main parts.


The call´s section Submission service allows you to submit the respective project proposal. The entire process is managed electronically through the Funding & tender opportunities portal. In order to submit a project proposal, all you need is registering yourself (and acquiring the EU Login) and your institution.


The project proposal templates (in PDF) can be found either at the call´s site in the section Condition and documents or in the portal in the section Reference Documents. The templates in word format are accessible through the Submission service section.


The project proposal


The project proposal consists of two parts. Part A is to be fulfilled directly in the Submission service system and it consists of administrative information about the applicants, the project, and the budget. Part B, the so-called technical part of the proposal, is commonly divided into three sections: Excellence, Impact, and the Quality and Efficiency of the Implementation.


Each call also states whether the evaluation takes form as a single-stage or a two-stage process. In case of the single-stage evaluation, the consortium needs to submit the full application right away; in case of the first step in a two-stage evaluation, the consortium submits a shorter version of the proposal.
