FAQs related to the Call for Expression of Interest ESCP-S3 (9)
If you do not wish to reply/comment to a partner search posting but still would like to be notified of replies or updates to it, you can follow the respective partner search by clicking on the green button „Follow“.
This is probably the case when someone else from your organisation has the administrator rights of your cluster organisation profile. Please ask your colleague who is in charge of your ECCP profile to add you as a cluster profile member (it takes less than 30 seconds!) – but first make sure that you yourself have a registered user account on the ECCP, so your email address is already in the system:
- He/she should go to the cluster profile page
- He/she should click on „Add your colleague“
- He/she should enter your email address in the field „Registered email address“
- He/she should click on „Add“ and the system will confirm the success of the procedure.
- Now you can upload any time of content you want on the Partner Search as well as on your cluster organisation profile.
Click on the button „Follow“ and you will receive an email notification about all the comments/postings related to this initiative.
Once the expression of interest is published by you in this section, the interested organisations/users logged in can express their own interest in joining your initiative by clicking „Express interest“ and you will receive an email notification.
Either you have already identified one/more cluster organisation(s) you would like to work with in this context or you can identify it/them from the list of profiled cluster organisations (http://www.clustercollaboration.eu/cluster-list). This organisation can then post the expression of interest on your behalf.
Without a published cluster profile, you cannot INITIATE a partner search (post your initiative), but if you have a user account, you can express your interest in participating in other initiatives already published in this section. Just click on “Express interest” on the respective posting. Alternatively, you can ask a cluster organization with a published profile and with whom you already cooperate for this action to post the message.
After clicking the button “Create Partner Search Request” (see below answer) you can copy & paste the text in the description field. You also have the possibility to upload (attach) an external document.
If a cluster organisation wants to set up a consortium addressing a certain topic, the steps are:
- The cluster organisation must have a published profile on ECCP. If this is not yet available, either create a profile http://www.clustercollaboration.eu/node/add/cluster-profile or if the process was initiated, check if the profile was submitted for validation.
- Click on the blue big button „Create Partner Search Request“. We also invite users to pre-view the process by clicking on the black button „? Tour“.
- For further assistance, please also check the Partner Search guidelines
If a user (belonging to a cluster organisation or a different type of organisation) wants to express interest for an already published ESCP-S3 initiative, the steps are:
- The user must have a filled user account (be registered and logged in) and must click on the blue line „Express interest“.
- Fill in the 2 fields requested.
- Save the content.
The only way to answer the Call for Expression of Interest is by posting your intention (concept note) in the partner search section of the ECCP.
