There’s a new Funding & Tenders Portal replacing the Participant Portal. The Participant Portal was built at the beginning of Horizon 2020. The scope was for the EU Research & Innovation Programme. However, as it’s use grew to other EU programmes, there was a need to re-brand the portal. The new portal will become a central point of access for most (all?) EU programmes, including tender and procurement contracts.
The question is, by having a portal with a much broader scope: Will scientists be able to navigate the new portal efficiently? In most software based projects a broader scope introduces more complexity.
