Deadline 14 May 2020 for the second stage proposal submission of the NMBP 2020 calls  maintained

European Commission confirms that the current deadline on the 14 May 2020 at 17.00 (Brussels time) for the second stage proposal submission of the NMBP 2020 calls  will be maintained.

 While understanding that this may cause proposers additional effort, the alternative is considered to create even more uncertainties and problems for the subsequent processes and everyone involved.

Keeping the deadline will allow for a scheduled implementation of the research actions, which is considered beneficial given the current situation, in regard to the post COVID-19 period, the competitiveness of the industry, as well as the end of the present H2020 R&I Framework Programme.
