27/03/2018

On 23 March 2018 the Participant Portal was upgraded to allow login from mobile devices: smartphones, tablets. This requires an additional security element (e.g. a code that will be send by SMS to the applicant’s smartphone). Applicants can chose between the old (password only) or new (two security elements) mobile login options. Both are not possible at the same time, but one can switch between the two options at any time and as many times as wished.

Caution is advised for the coordinators, who chose the new mobile login option due to the additional security element, which can affect the proposal submission. If for example a code sent by SMS is needed and 5 min before the submission closes the coordinator’s smartphone has no network coverage (roaming issues) or runs out of battery he/she cannot login and therefore may not be able to submit the proposal.

26/02/2018

The ECSEL JU Work Plan 2018 has been updated as follows: financial commitments table (increased IT commitment ) (page 26) and updated information in the chapter 9 Country specific eligibility rules for DE (page 76), IT (page 86), UK (page 123)
