We are very proud that our proposal passed successfully the first stage of submission upon a call INFRAIA-02-2017 of the Horizon 2020 research programme. We achieved a maximum of score of 10 out of 10 points. Our proposal was one of the 33 proposals that passed to the second stage. Ninety-four proposals in total were submitted in the first stage.
We are preparing a full proposal for the second stage now. We have to consolidate our high ranking of the first stage to pass successfully the second stage as well. We are working on, (i) fitting EUPLANTCROPP very well into the European Research Area, (ii) completing an excellent advisory board, and (iii) increasing the support of companies and academia for the establishment of EUPLANTCROPP all over Europe. We then continue with a consortium meeting at the University of Life Sciences in Prague by the end of November. Finally, we will write the complete proposal submitting it by the end of March 2017.
