Project calls

Nature and conditions

The project call procedure is one of the research policy levers which can be used to stimulate the development of knowledge, innovative technology and the growth of businesses.


Project calls passed on by competitiveness clusters are usually aimed at the development of technological innovation and may be of several types :

  • Regional : the Cluster’s project coordinators and its project committee may issue an opinion on calls for project proposals issued by the regions
  • National : FUI, ANR, Ademe or even BPI
  • European even worldwide, such as subjects resulting from the Horizon 2020 work programme.


The eligibility of a call for proposals is subject to several conditions set out in a specification and might relate to the number and nature of the parties involved, the topic in question, the objective or even the geographical area concerned.


Although the response file is specific to each request for proposals, the specification most often requires the following information :

  • A description of the objectives and resources to be applied to the project
  • A schedule for carrying out the work
  • A provisional budget for the project and its anticipated duration
  • the presentation of various administrative documents associated with the status applicants responding to the request for proposals
  • The establishment of confidentiality and consortium agreements


... all this is done following a strict calendar for the opening and closing of the invitation to submit a proposal.
