Water4All – Opening of the Partner Search tool for joining Consortia in STEP 2.

The Water4All Call Secretariat is offering the opportunity to interested organisations to join consortia invited in submitting the full proposal in step 2.

Interested organisations can access to the list of admitted proposals to Step 2 here and register in Water4All Partnering tool offering their availability in joining the consortium selected.

Interested organisations when offering as partner shall include in the Offer Title the code and acronym of the proposal they want to join.

Consortia Coordinators will be invited in checking the offers in the partnering Tool and when the agreement between the Coordinator and the new organisation has been reached, the coordinator shall ask for the consortium’ s change approval (see How to request a change in the Consortium below)

Organisations wanting to join existing consortia shall verify in advance their national eligibility criteria both through the National Regulation and by contacting their appropriate Funding Agency, (please see Annex C of the Call Announcement for details).

Please note:

  • The information given in the pre-proposals is binding. No major changes regarding the proposals’ content will be allowed by the Call Steering Committee (CSC) between the pre-proposals and full proposals. Take this into account if adding new partners to the consortium.
  • The eligible changes are those complying with the paragraph 5.1 of the Call Announcement:
    • Changes in the consortium composition are allowed (maximum 2 changes of Project Partners in proposals with more than 5 partners; maximum 1 change of project partner in proposals with 5 or less partners), provided approval by the concerned Funding Organisations. Please note that the following actions are considered as changes: addition, removal or replacement of a Partner (incl. subcontracted and self-financed partners). Please note that the maximum number of changes applies to “Partner”, i.e., the independent legal entity participating in the Transnational RD&I project.
  • Furthermore, in addition to the changes allowed by the call text, Consortia may add, on a voluntary base, one more additional partner established in one of the undersubscribed countries: Turkey, Latvia, Belgium (limited only to partners requesting funding to VLAIO Agentschap Innoveren & Ondernemen), Luxembourg Israel, Slovakia, Lithuania, Hungary and Italy (limited only to partners requesting funding to the Ministry for Enterprises and Made in Italy). The inclusion of a new partner from these countries is not mandatory and will not give any advantage in the evaluation of the proposals.
