Calls for project proposals

Research and innovation funding is often awarded following calls for project proposals. The calls specify the topics and actions for which funding is available, the criteria that must be fulfilled, the deadline for submitting proposals, and so on. Proposals are evaluated and the best ones receive funding.

This table lists calls published by several European programmes – including notably Horizon 2020 – as well as by Luxembourg programmes funding public research. Permanent calls of the European Space Agency (ESA) are included, while a complete overview of all ESA calls can be found via EMITS.

In order to find calls of your interest, you can filter the table by programme or by topic. Each call is linked to its official source of publication. Only the information published by the official sources is formally valid.
