The executive coordination of the PERIN network, in conjunction with thematic coordinators, supervises the «Observatory of national participation in European programs», to be maintained and promoted by ANI in collaboration with FCT, Portugal Space, AICIB and Agência Erasmus+ EF, in order to keep the national participation database updated and to ensure an updated dissemination.

Until 24th October, national entities participated in 2471 H2020 approved projects, resulting in more than EUR 1.160 million H2020 funding, with a higher success rate (14%) than the EU average (12,7). This corresponds to a return of national funding rate of 1.65%, higher than the target of 1.5% set earlier for H2020. The year 2020 presented the best results ever, with around 217 M€ captured by national entities, corresponding to a rate of return of 1.79%.
