The consultation is online and runs from 8 December 2016 to 10 March 2017. There are 6 sections and it should take around 20 minutes to complete. You can answer all or part of the questionnaire depending on how familiar you are with the different Joint Undertakings operating under Horizon 2020.
In the interest of transparency, organisations are invited to provide the public with relevant information about themselves by registering in the Transparency Register and subscribing to its Code of Conduct. If an organisation is not registered, its submission is published separately from the registered organisations.
What happens next?
The results of the public stakeholder consultation will feed into the interim evaluation of the Joint Undertakings as well as to the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 overall. The results of the interim evaluation will be used as a basis to improve the performance of the JUs and will be communicated to the European Parliament and the Council, national authorities, the research community and other stakeholders.
The European Commission will deliver one Communication on the key evaluation results of the overall Horizon 2020 interim evaluation and one Staff Working Document on the results of the interim evaluation of the JUs. Both documents will include a summary of the results of the consultation.
