How to participate in Horizon 2020
To participate in a cooperative research project, a Japanese researcher/institution needs to join in a consortium consisting of at least three institutions from at least three EU Member States or Associated Countries. For research mobility schemes, a Japanese researcher needs to submit a proposal to a call (MSCA, ERC), published on the Horizon 2020 Participant Portal, which includes the Guide for Applicants.
