The European Commission recently officially opened the Horizon Europe Hop-On Facility. This facility 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 industries and circular industries.

Therefore, FIT-4-NMP is offering the following free service to projects funded under the Horizon Europe Pillar 2 or EIC pathfinder schemes:

  • Practical support to find a participant from a Widening country involved in advanced materials, manufacturing technologies, clean industries 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.

Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA) is FIT-4-NMP project partner and invites Lithuanian companies and organizations, operating in the field of NMP and wishing to join the existing funding  of the second activity of the Horizon Europe program Global Challenges and Competitiveness of European Industry and EIC Pathfinder projects, to contact MITA R&D programs and international cooperation department specialist Deividas Petrulevičius (e-mail deividas.petrulevicius@mita.lt, tel. +370645 89138).

If you are involved in, or aware of, a soon-to-start or recently started project (Pillar 2 or EIC pathfinder) and you are interested in FIT-4-NMP’s free service, you are also welcome to send an email enquiry to fit-4-nmp@intelligentsia-consultants.com.
