European Commission Extends Horizon 2020 Deadlines Due to Coronavirus

All deadlines up to 15 April have been extended to allow applicants sufficient time to prepare their proposals.

Due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the European Commission will extend Horizon 2020 application deadlines to allow applicants extra time to prepare and finalise submissions.

All Horizon 2020 calls with deadlines up to 15 April 2020 will be extended with the current exception of IMI2 Call 21: Development of Therapeutics and Diagnostics Combatting Coronavirus Infections.

The Commission has advised the precise new deadlines for affected calls and topics will be published on the Funding and Tenders Portal in the coming weeks. Applicants are advised to prepare themselves as necessary, with the additional advice that effective communication links be established to enable remote collaborative work, with further restrictions on office access and team meetings anticipated over the coming weeks and months.
