The purpose of EUopSTART is to intensify the participation of Danish enterprises and research institutions in European research and innovation.

Deadlines in 2021

In 2021 there will be 3 cut-offs at 12.00 p.m. (noon) on the following dates:

  • 8 June 2021
  • 24 August 2021
  • 2 November 2021

New Dealine for EUopSTART

The approval and final publication of a series of work programmes for 2021/2022 in Horizon Europe have, unfortunately, been delayed. The publication of all work programmes was originally planned for the beginning of April 2021. However, the publication is now expected to take place in the end of May 2021 and a series of partnership will most likely be approved even later than May 2021

Because of this, the first cut-off for submission of EUopSTART applications has been postponed to 8 June 2021 12:00 p.m.

By this time, 8 June 2021, there will still be a series of programmes and partnerships in Horizon Europe which have not yet been approved and published. In this case, we will process EUopSTART aplications, which have been submitted, for the second cut-off date of 2021, i.e. 24 August 2021.

When will you get an Answer?

Applicants can expect an answer to their application around 4-5 weeks after the deadline. Due to Corona, there will be a slightly extended casework time.
