The European Commission (EC) has announced the release of its new corporate Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal. According to the EC, this portal will replace the current Participant Portal and will become the single entry point for finding and managing EU grants and procurement contracts, by covering all centrally managed programmes by the start of the next EU multiannual programme period in 2021.
The new portal includes all functions currently available on the Participant Portal, as well as a new layout and graphic design, and an improved keyword search function with new features and search behaviour. It reflects its multi-programme coverage and integrates the calls for tenders. The current Participant Portal will disappear at the end of the year.
