La Commissione ha pubblicato sul Participant Portal di Horizon 2020 alcune importanti considerazioni utili a chi deve presentare la fase 2 dei topic CIRC-01-2016-2017CIRC-02-2016-2017. Ecco il testo della Commissione europea:

"For successful first stage applicants, it is important to uphold the principle of equal treatment, and to ensure that all have a chance to benefit from the comments of experts. Therefore, instead of an ESR, this generalised feedback is provided now to all applicants invited to submit a full proposal at the second stage. You are kindly requested to take this feedback into account when preparing your full proposal. At the second stage you have a chance to address or clarify issues that should convince the second stage experts. Some or all of these experts may not be the same as those who reviewed your outline proposal.

Summary of main shortcomings in first stage successful proposals:


Topic CIRC-01-2016-2017: Systemic, eco-innovative approaches for the circular economy: large-scale demonstration projects

  • The objectives did not always include quantitative targets or these targets were not always convincingly supported
  • The concept description was not always focused and clear on the innovation potential, the circular economy view, the economic mechanisms and governance required for a swift on a specific circular value chain
  • The role of end-users was not always sufficiently described with regards to their importance in the value chain or their involvement is missing at early stages
  • The expected TRL was not always sufficiently substantiated
  • Large scale demonstrations were not always sufficiently explained and/or did not always have a clear co-design approach to justify the need for such demonstrations
  • Expected economic and environmental impacts were not always adequately quantified and/or were not always sufficiently explained in relation to the demonstration
  • Business models were not always sufficiently presented


Topic CIRC-02-2016-2017: Water in the context of the circular economy

  • The objectives did not always include quantitative targets or they were not always convincingly substantiated
  • Objectives addressing the relevant legal, societal and market challenges were not always present
  • The interest among fertilizer companies or other potential end-users of the recycled nutrient was not always demonstrated
  • The role of end-users of recycled nutrient was not always sufficiently described, and often defined to contribute only in the last stages of the proposed action
  • Quantitative information supporting the expected impact of the action was not always presented
  • Metrics for the final capacity of the technology and its outputs were not always described
