The Participant Portal, the central web platform for the EC research and innovation funding, is improving its user-friendliness and functions for H2020 and this webinar will highlight its main features.
All the grant-related online exchanges of EC research and innovation funding are managed on the Participant Portal. To make the system as user-friendly as possible and to prepare it for Horizon 2020, the Commission seeks continuous advice from the actual users. The next meeting of an external user group is planned for Monday 9th September 2013 (3pm – 6pm UK time) in Brussels and at this meeting, discussion points will include:
- The improved version of the Participant Portal for Horizon 2020
- The approach for completely paperless management of Horizon 2020 grants
- New online functions for the appointment and payment of experts
- Improvements to the system of registering organisations
To allow maximum participation and input from a wide audience, this meeting will be webcast with a live stream. Additionally, a web forum will be used where questions and comments can be posted, either during or after the meeting.
The video link for the live stream will be available from 14.00 Brussels time (3pm UK time) on the 9th September, with a recording of the meeting available shortly after the meeting. To access the webinar and a draft agenda, please click here.
