Have you used the Participant Portal lately? Do you like the updated navigation and design?
We have tested it and summarized our first impressions:
- Having a search function for grants and tenders in one place is definitely a great step ahead. You can now search by keywords and filter by programmes, submission status and calls for tenders – all within the same page, without having to open specific websites;
- The design for call updates is much clearer to read now; however, we advise you to still use the standard portal, as the links are not directing properly;
- The partner search function is easier to use and is visually more appealing.
- Simplified support button directs to various manuals through grouped thematic sections.
- Having a separate tab for key steps provides a good overview both of the EU funding programmes application logic and functionalities of the Portal, especially for newcomers.
