EURAXESS Tutorial - How to find EU-funded research projects

Applicants for European research funding programmes often wonder what makes a successful proposal. Which ideas made the cut? What was the outcome of these research endevaours? Others are keen to locate participants of projects that have successfully applied for EU funding to build new partnerships. Fortunately, the European Commission provides all this information in one spot – on CORDIS!


What is CORDIS?

CORDIS – short for ‚Community Research and Development Information Service‘ is the European Commission's primary source of results from the projects funded by the EU's framework programmes for research and innovation.

Through CORDIS the European Commission aims to bring research results to professionals in the field to foster open science, create innovative products and services and stimulate growth across Europe.

CORDIS has a rich and structured public repository with all project information held by the European Commission such as:

  • project factsheets,
  • participants,
  • reports,
  • deliverables, and
  • links to open-access publications.

CORDIS also produces its own range of publications and articles to make it easier for its users to find relevant results that they can use in their domain. The print editions are in English while the web versions are also available in French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish.

CORDIS is one of the cornerstones of the Commission's strategy to disseminate and exploit research results and it is governed and funded as part of the Horizon 2020 framework programme.
