The FIT-4-NMP project, of which TC CAS is a member, offers free service to projects funded under the Horizon Europe Pillar 2 or EIC Pathfinder schemes in the framework of the Horizon Europe Hop-On Facility call.This call enables one additional participant from a Widening country to join a project (i.e. with a signed grant agreement) funded under the Horizon Europe Pillar 2 or EIC pathfinder schemes, which does not already have a participant from a Widening country.
The Horizon Europe Hop-On Facility is open to all topics under the Pillar 2 and EIC pathfinder schemes and it has two cut-off dates: 20 April 2022 and 10 November 2022. To include the additional participant, an extra budget between 200,000 – 500,000 euro can be requested with up to 10% allocated to the coordinator of the consortium.
Meanwhile, FIT-4-NMP is a support action (Grant Agreement 958255) to increase the participation of talented newcomers from underrepresented regions in Horizon Europe in advanced materials, manufacturing technologies, clean and circular industries.
Services offered include:
- Practical support to find a participant from a Widening country involved in advanced materials, manufacturing technologies, clean or circular industries,
- Practical help to provide the participant’s information for the Part A (e.g. administrative details, budget, etc.) and Part B (e.g. new task description, etc.) for an application to the Hop-On Facility,
- Practical assistance to prepare a grant amendment to include the participant.
