The call HORIZON-CL4-2023-SPACE-01 closed on 28 March 2023 and HaDEA has now completed its evaluation of the proposals submitted.
HaDEA has started grant agreement preparations with the successful consortia:
- 35 proposals will receive €122 million.
All applicants have been informed about the evaluation results on 24 July 2023.
169 experts were involved in the evaluation and ethics assessment of 141 proposals from April until June, and an independent observer concluded that it followed all applicable rules.
There was good coverage of all work programme topics except one for which no proposal was received.
After evaluation, one further topic will remain without a proposal retained for funding. For all other topics, the EU budget is well-invested and political objectives have good chances to be achieved. €15 million of the call budget will not be consumed and can be reallocated by the European Commission.
The success rate varied for the topics and is on average 25%.
The share of EU funding going to SMEs is 30%.
HaDEA intends to sign grant agreements by end-November 2023.
