Please don’t forget to send both proposals on time. The strict cut-off dates in ENEN# are primarily intended for individual applications. Group applications do not have strict deadlines.
There is no fund for emergency travel under ENEN++.
No, the related committees will talk with each other. Success strongly depends upon the work plan, which should include a sophisticated, well-elaborated travel management. A high quality work plan, which convinces the OFFERR committee, will have the highest chances to convince the ENEN++ mobility committee.
No, the ENEN++ template should be used. Please don’t forget to mention that this is a combined OFFERR-ENEN++ proposal.
Please use the group application. Here it depends upon the travel frequency, since there is a lumped sum for each travel.
ENEN++ immobility is focussed on individual learners. Such situations might be covered by group application. In the project plan, which has to be submitted anyhow, please name the people and the duration of staying incl. travelling. Please request a lumped sum for the entire mobility. In this case, one person from OFFERR will be responsible to distribute the money among all people involved.
 At the moment (June 2023) designed for the same grant for all members of the group!
The target group are young scientists, early researchers, students and pupils for the visiting party. The costs of travelling of senior scientists, managers, etc. shall be covered by the organisation of the visiting party (see mobility manual for details). Costs of the host organisations including their travelling are not covered.
This document is mandatory, and without it your project will not be eligible.
An example can be the text below:
Infrastructure agreement for the XXX proposal of the OFFERR project
The user’s team (XXX) and the infrastucture provider (XXX) agree on a common proposal of performing the XXX experiment.
The infrastructure provider commits on the availability and costs to be charged for the work described in the technical proposal document included in the application to the OFFERR project.
On the XXX
on behalf of the user’s team on behalf of the infrastructure
- if it is not in EUFN (independently on whether it is in or outside EU), then the project is not eligible,
- if it is in EUFN and in EU, then the infrastructure can receive funding for the experiment and consumables,
- if it is in EUFN but outside EU, then the infrastructure can receive funding neither for experiment nor for consumables (but a project is eligible).
EUFN means the OFFERR database (excel file and rolling list in the call platform)
- from EU can receive funding for travel and subsistence,
- from non-EU cannot receive funding for travel and subsistence (but a project is eligible).
• Analysis of experimental data acquired during the experiment cannot be funded by OFFERR.
• If the infrastructure provider needs to perform safety study to get a permission from a safety authority to run the experiment, then calculations and their analysis for such safety study is considered to be a part of the experiment preparation and therefore it is eligible to be funded by OFFERR because it is “the cost that the User must pay to the Infrastructure Provider for the use of the infrastructure” as stated in Terms of Reference.
As written in section 2 of ToR: https://snetp.eu/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/OFFERR-Terms-of-Reference-230309.pdf there are three activities eligible for funding:
- costs of the infrastructure (i.e. the experiment)
- consumables (i.e. supporting material)
- travel and subsistence.
Travel and subsistence alone won’t be funded by OFFERR.
We encourage to combine OFFERR and ENEN++ funding supports.
Individuals and groups can apply for a mobility grant as a part of an OFFERR-project execution (see the mobility manual for more information). It should be noticed that the mobility grant is based upon a lumped sum approach, depending upon days of travel. The grant will not include cost of a fee, if related to an OFFERR-project.
Once your project proposals is eligible, you will receive a request to send to OFFERR coordinator 2 documents. The first one is a bank identification and the second one is "SUPPLIER INFORMATIONS FORM". This form is compulsory in order to receive funding from the OFFERR project coordinator.
The results must be publicly available as soon as possible. The User/Infrastructure report will be published on OFFERR webpage immediately after the validation by OFFERR. If you provide your results within these reports, you will meet all requirements. If you decide to publish your results in the form of journal or conference papers, you must inform and acknowledge OFFERR properly.
OFFERR project is funded by the Horizon 2020 program, thus your project must also comply with the same EC regulations. Nevertheless, part of the results can rbe indicated as of limited distribution. The project will follow its Intellectual Property Agreement (IPA). “Results must be as open as possible, as close as necessary”
For every facility, you need to provide the details in a standard OFFERR factsheet, available on the OFFERR webpage.
The factsheets are then stored in the database and available to prepare and submit a project proposal (it will be added to the rolling list of facilities on the call platform).
Data of the new facilities are also included as new pages into the updated brochure every year.
In order to proceed adding a new facility, please contact directly Stephane Gaillot (email@example.com) and Charles Toulemonde (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Facilities can be integrated in our database and in our catalog every six months. If you follow the procedure (available on the OFFERR webpage), your facilities can be available for the next call.
No, applicants must apply with facilities identified in the OFFERR database. They all are listed in the rolling list available on the call platform.
Clusters clarify the category of facility you intend to do. Moreover, clusters will help us select appropriate reviewers for your proposal and then speed-up the evaluation process.
Call areas will determine the area of research you intend to perform in your application and the area of the results of the project. Clusters determine the category of the facility you intend to use.
Contact our help desk and we will check where the problem is.
The engagement document is unique to each collaboration between the applicant and the infrastructure provider, so no format is enforced by OFFERR but the content could be a subset of the proposal contents, complemented with specific provisions required by the facility (may be indicated in the facility factsheet).
The Infrastructure Agreement is the combination of the engagement document and the intellectual property agreement (not mandatory for FastTrack proposals). OFFERR does not provide any template for both.
