The ARTEMIS Proposal Submission Service

ARTEMIS makes use of the FP7 Electronic Proposal Submission Service (EPSS) for proposal submission. Proposals submitted any other way will not be accepted.

Project Coordinators should register themselves first and set up the basic parameters of the proposal. Other participants in the proposal can then be invited to join. (Note: only invite partners who have already agreed to participate in the proposal. The EPSS is not a partner search tool!)
