    What is meant by “IP clustering in integrated proposals?” How do you plan to cluster IPs?

    CliffVC edited question

      After checking their relevance to DP 2015 and PCP, SDM will cluster the IPs into a limited number of proposals. The clusterisation provides for mutualisation of FPA coordination activity and easier coordination and synchronisation of IPs in the later execution phase. Based on experience drawn from the call 2014, SDM plans to cluster projects into proposals according to:

      Their relevance to General or Cohesion calls;

      Their completion date.

      Then, within each proposal, the IP will be further clustered per AF.

      On this basis, SDM currently envisages to submit 2 proposals under the General call and one proposal under the Cohesion call.
