ECSEL JU opens two concurrent Calls in 2017:

  • H2020-ECSEL-2017-2-RIA-two-stage - Research and Innovation Actions (RIA)

Both ECSEL Calls 2017 have two stages, Project Outline (stage 1) and Full Project Proposal (stage 2). The submission of a Project Outline is mandatory, only proposals having submitted a Project Outline will be allowed to submit a Full Project Proposal.

The topics for all Calls are described in the ECSEL Multi-Annual Strategic Plan (MASP), document ECSEL-GB-2017.78. This can be downloaded here: ECSEL MASP 2017

RIA differs from the IA in the technology readiness level focus and, therefore, in the applicable reimbursement rates.
