In most cases results are notified approximately five months after the application deadline.
Notification emails are sent to coordinators (or applicants in the case of ERC or Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships) and copied to everyone who has access to the proposal on the EC Portal. Once results are notified evaluation reports are available on the EC portal. For successful projects a grant preparation phase is opened for the project on the portal – accessed through “My Projects”.
All H2020 projects go through a grant preparation process between receiving notification of success and signature of the grant agreement. The process is led by the project coordinator (or host institution in the case of ERC grants and Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships).
The Research Funding Team of Research Services supports this process. As soon as an award is notified we email the Oxford PI and their Department to explain the process, timescales and where responsibility for action lies. The Research Funding Lead within the Research Funding Team is the only person authorised at Oxford to sign European Commission grant agreements on behalf of the University.
