It can be recommended to browse through the info session recordings and presentations before you start writing your proposal, that unfortunately do not necessarily have the same title as the call.

Recommended actions

Some associations or companies might be interested in participating to some of these calls, most of these will run over several years.

At present the overview does not contain many organisations that are looking for collaborating partners, nor have proposals yet been formulated to respond to these calls.

In view of the recent studies that lacked stakeholder involvement it may prove useful to keep an eye on these calls and the related proposals that would appear.
