The pre-proposals responded to the joint call for projects on risks posed to human health and the environment by pollutants and pathogens present in the water resources launched by the three Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in collaboration with the European Commission under the framework of the AquaticPollutants Cofund
The evaluation and selection of the pre-proposals included an eligibility check of the pre-proposals and a scientific evaluation performed by external reviewers. After the evaluation, the Call Steering Committee selected, on September 30th 2020, 53 projects pre-proposals to proceed to the second step in the process: the submission of a full proposal. The selection was aimed at retaining the maximum number of projects, based on the quality of the pre-proposal and taking into account the available funding.
The coordinators of the pre-proposals will be notified of the results of first phase and the applicants of the selected projects will be invited to the full proposal submission platform.
