The coordinator of the consortium composes one joint pre-proposal by completing the pre-proposal template. The coordinator then converts the word-document to a pdf-document to submit it to the Joint Call Secretariat via the electronic submission system.

Please note that further information is required online by the electronic submission system to complete the submission. It is thus strongly recommended to register early for the electronic submission system and to check out all information required. The pre-proposal may be uploaded and changed again, unless you press the button ‘final submission’ / unless the deadline has passed.


The deadline for the electronic proposal submission is on

09 March 2021, 14:00 (CET).


For your information about the requirements in the full proposal stage, the full proposal template is also available for download:

Full proposals will be accepted only from those applicants explicitly invited by the Joint Call Secretariat to submit them after positive evaluation of the pre-proposals.

A detailed Data Managemant Plan (DMP) has to be submitted by the consortium coordinator of each project selected for funding within 6 months after the project official start date. For more information consult the extended NEURON DMP format here
