Proposal templates and annexes

The following templates and annexes can be downloaded from the Funding and Tenders Portal submission system, and via the links below. Note that some annexes are compulsory for certain calls / stages. Unless specified otherwise, annexes should be uploaded into the submission system as separate documents.

Research and Innovation Actions – full proposals (single-stage calls, and second stage of two-stage calls)

  • Proposal template – Part A
    Part A of the proposal is generated by the IT system in the submission system, where applicants insert general information on their proposal (e.g. proposal acronym), details of the participants, the budget, information on ethics and security, as well as other type of information (e.g. information on clinical studies). For more information, see the Horizon Europe Part A template here. (Note that only Part A of this template applies to this call. For Part B, see below.)
  • Proposal template – Part B pdf | Word
    Part B should be completed by the consortium and uploaded into the portal.
  • Annex: Type of Participants Excel
    Compulsory annex for all calls and stages. Instructions on how to complete this annex can be found here.
  • Annex: Declaration of in-kind contribution commitment pdf | Word
    Compulsory annex for all single-stage calls.
  • Annex: In-kind contributions to additional activities Excel
    Optional annex for single-stage calls and the second stage of two-stage calls. Instructions on how to complete this annex can be found here.
  • Annex: Essential information for clinical studies Word
    Although this annex is optional for single-stage calls and the second stage of two-stage calls, consortia planning any kind of clinical study are strongly encouraged to provide details via this dedicated annex.
  • Annex: Ethics (no template)
    Optional annex for single-stage calls and the second stage of two-stage calls. Part A of the proposal includes an ethics self-assessment. However, if the proposal raises many serious ethical issues, the character count in Part A may not be enough for applicants to provide all the information needed. If this is the case for you, you should provide any additional information on the ethical aspects of your proposal in a separate document and upload it as an ethics annex. Note that there is no specific template for this annex.

Research and Innovation Actions – short proposals (first stage of two-stage calls)

  • Proposal template – Part A
    Part A of the proposal is generated by the IT system in the submission system, where applicants insert general information on their proposal (e.g. proposal acronym), details of the participants, and the budget. For more information, see the Horizon Europe Stage 1 Part A template here. (Note that only Part A of this template applies to this call. For Part B, see below.)
  • Proposal template – Part B pdf | Word

Grant agreement and consortium agreement

Grant agreement

  • Horizon Europe General Model Grant Agreement
    The model grant agreement may be updated from time to time – this link will always take you to the latest version.
  • Annotated Model Grant Agreement
    The annotated model grant agreement provides detailed information and guidance on all points raised in the model grant agreement.

Consortium agreement

All project partners must sign a consortium agreement that sets out participants’ rights and obligations and addresses issues like governance, liability and intellectual property rights. The agreement should be adapted to the needs of each project. A template prepared by the IHI founding industry members shows what a consortium agreement might look like; it is available on the websites of COCIR and EFPIA. Consortia may also use alternative templates if they wish.
