Consortia with an approved Project Outline (PO) are invited to submit a Full Project Proposal (FPP). The FPP must detail the project content and describe the project plan and how the project will be executed and managed. Special attention should be paid to the recommendations and improvements made in the PO evaluation report from both the technical experts and Public Authorities.

While preparing the FPP, consortia are strongly encouraged to keep in touch with the Public Authorities in all participating countries in order to ensure that your proposal fits within each country’s priorities and funding rules. For contact details, go to the funding page.

Submitting an FPP

Submitting an FPP consists of three parts:

  1. Provision of administrative information via the PENTA/EURIPIDES² Project Zone

  2. Provision of (an updated) textual description of the content of your proposal in an “FPP Annex” template which also needs to be uploaded to the Project Zone (different Annex documents are available for PENTA, EURIPIDES² or co-labelled PENTA/EURIPIDES² submissions)

  3. For PENTA projects, completion of an AENEAS membership application or PENTA Declaration of Acceptance.

  4. For EURIPIDES² projects, completion of an EURIPIDES² Declaration of Acceptance – Annex B.

The FPP Annex template (including guidelines), together with tutorials and support materials covering FPP submission can be downloaded from the Call documents page. Please ensure that you use the correct template for a PENTA, EURIPIDES² or co-labelled project submission.

PENTA/ EURIPIDES² team members are available to assist you throughout the submission process

FPP Evaluation

PENTA FPP’s are evaluated by the PENTA Technical Expert Group, the AENEAS Management Committee and the PENTA Public Authorities based on the guidance given in the FPP Annex and National Authority funding procedures.

EURIPIDES² FPP’s are evaluated by the Technical and Evaluation Committee and the EURIPIDES² Public Authorities based on the guidance given in the FPP Annex and National Authority funding procedures.

EURIPIDES² /PENTA co-labelled FPP’s are evaluated by a joint technical expert and Public Authority process based on the guidance given in the FPP Annex and National Authority funding procedures.

Labelling and Funding

After the FPP evaluation processes have been completed joint meetings between the Public Authorities and the AENEAS-EURIPIDES² management teams will agree which projects should be given the EUREKA label and subsequently funded.

After Labelling

During the first year of the project, a Project Consortium Agreement (PCA) must be signed by all partners. This details the co-operation between the project partners (contractors and subcontractors, where applicable) and addresses important issues, such as IP. For some Public Authorities, the PCA – signed by all partners – is a prerequisite for funding.

See the Call documents page for a Model PCA. For EURIPIDES² Model PCA, please also go to the Call documents.

Partners must apply for funding to their National Public Authorities.The PENTA and/or EURIPIDES² label is endorsed by all EUREKA Member Countries and financial support can be provided according to national funding procedures; for more information go to the funding page
