Since 14 July the Participant Portal provides a new service for finding potential partners for Horizon 2020 proposals. The service is complementary to existing partner search services offered by a number of NCPs and other organisations. It makes use of existing data in the Commission's databases for automatically creating organisation profiles.
In its first version, the service allows searching for organisations and displaying their profiles.
The service will be expanded in two additional stages to include:
• The possibility to indicate an interest in finding partners related to a particular call topic (open or forthcoming).
Planned delivery: December 2017
• The option to publish profiles of individual persons and make them searchable. As for the organisation profiles, also the person profiles will be created automatically, based on the available data. For the person profiles, any disclosure requires the explicit consent of the person.
Planned delivery: 1st quarter of 2018
