H2020 Calls – Deadlines Extension

The COVID-19 situation pushed H2020 applicants to request deadline extensions. In an interview to Science|Business, R&I Commissioner Gabriel explained that decisions will be taken case by case. The EC has already announced that H2020 Calls with original deadlines up to 15 April will be extended (except for those on IMI and EIC Pilot Calls, with special focus on COVID-19). Further information will be published on the Funding and Tenders Portal as well as on DG RTD website. An FAQ has already been published on the extended call deadlines.

The EC is working on giving as much information as possible while adjusting to the crisis, which could take some time to run smoothly. EARTO will be glad to ask the EC for more precise information to help its members in few weeks: we need first to give time to the EC to organise itself with its agencies. The EARTO Secretariat will keep monitoring developments to provide you with the most recent updates.
