The European Commission is phasing out the Participant Portal and replacing it by the Funding & Tenders Portal, which will allow searching for EU funding and tender opportunities, and managing grants and contracts in one place. Redirection to the new portal is happening since end of November, and soon the old portal will be switched off.
The new Participant Portal will host all centrally managed EU programmes in one location. Moreover, it will cover calls for tender and the related procurement contracts. Anyway, besides its different look, it still give access to the same kind of information, assets and functions. Furthermore, new username and password are not required.
In the future, fully electronic management will be introduced gradually, and in a few years procurement contracts will be handled paperless.
