Technical Annex

(1st stage of a two-stage submission procedure)
Research and Innovation actions

Innovation actions

This template is to be used at the 1st stage of a two-stage submission procedure.
The structure of this template must be followed when preparing your proposal. It has been designed to ensure

that the important aspects of your planned work are presented in a way that will enable the experts to make an effective assessment against the evaluation criteria. Excellence and impact each correspond to an evaluation

criterion for a 1st stage proposal in a two-stage submission procedure.
Please be aware that proposals will be evaluated as they were submitted, rather than on their potential if certain changes were to be made. This means that only proposals that successfully address all the required aspects will have a chance of being funded.
After the deadline, excess pages (in over-long proposals/applications) will not be taken into consideration by the experts. The proposal is a self-contained document. Experts will be instructed to ignore hyperlinks to information that is specifically designed to expand the proposal, thus circumventing the page limit.
Please, do not consider the page limit as a target! It is in your interest to keep your text as concise as possible, since experts rarely view unnecessarily long proposals in a positive light.

  • The following formatting conditions apply:

The reference font for the body text of PRIMA proposals is Times New Roman (Windows platforms), Times/Times New Roman (Apple platforms) or Nimbus Roman No. 9 L (Linux distributions).

The use of a different font for the body text is not advised and is subject to the cumulative conditions that the

font is legible and that its use does not significantly shorten the representation of the proposal in number of pages compared to using the reference font (for example with a view to bypass the page limit).

The minimum font size allowed is 11 points. Standard character spacing and a minimum of single line spacing is to be used.
Text elements other than the body text, such as headers, foot/end notes, captions, formula's, may deviate, but

must be legible.

The page size is A4, and all margins (top, bottom, left, right) should be at least 15 mm (not including any

footers or headers).

Please delete these explanations before submitting your proposal
