How to submit a Full Project Proposal (FPP)
Consortia with an approved Project Outline (PO) are invited to submit a Full Project Proposal (FPP). The FPP must detail the project content and describe the project plan and how the project will be executed and managed. Special attention should be paid to the recommendations and improvements made in the PO evaluation report. For the full list of criteria, please visit the selection criteria.
While preparing the FPP, you must keep in touch with the public authorities in all participating countries in order to ensure that your proposal fits within each country’s priorities and funding rules. For contact details, go to the funding page.

FPPs are evaluated by the SMART Technical Committee and SMART Public Authorities in line with the selection criteria. Based on these evaluation results and the feedback from the public authorities, the SMART Board decides on the labelling of the proposals.
After labelling, a Project Consortium Agreement (PCA) must be signed by all partners. This details the co-operation between the project partners (contractors and subcontractors, where applicable). For some Public Authorities, the PCA – signed by all partners – is a prerequisite for funding. SMART provides a PCA template that may be used as a reference by the consortium.
Partners must apply for funding to their national public authorities. The SMART label is endorsed by all EUREKA Member Countries and financial support can be provided according to national funding procedures; for more information go to the funding page.
