SOFIA: Submission OF Information Application


Welcome to SOFIA (Submission OF Information Application), the IMI electronic submission tool to be used for submitting your application in response to a topic of an IMI2 Call.

Please find the documentation and templates which you need to draft a proposal in the Public Area.

Proposals may be finalised and re-opened online until the ‘Submit’ button is pressed. To trigger the admissibility check, eligibility check and the evaluation, firstly the ‘Finalise’ button and secondly the ‘Submit to IMI’ button must be pressed in SOFIA by the Call submission deadline

For any questions regarding the Call please visit the IMI website or sends us an e-mail using the Helpdesk function.

IMI2 Call 8 - Full Proposal Submission

The 5th and final cut-off submission deadline is scheduled for: 

Thursday 15th March 2018 at 17:00:00 Brussels time in the Participant Portal

Please read important notice below :

New! Applicants submitting proposals under the 4th or 5th cut-off dates (14/09/2017 and 15/03/2018 respectively) should use the Horizon 2020 Participant Portal submission tool. The following Call documents have been updated to reflect this change: Call text; Manual for evaluation, submission and grant award.

Synergies with CEPI: In order to fully address the objectives of the IMI2 Ebola+ programme as a programmatic approach addressing different challenges across the entire innovation cycle and aiming at leveraging input and multi-disciplinary expertise across stakeholders, potential applicants are also strongly encouraged to consider the opportunities offered through the Call for proposals that will be launched in parallel by the CEPI alliance (Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations). In line with the IMI2 Call 8 topic text, this would offer the foundation for constructive synergies and complementarities with other projects and initiatives focusing on preparedness to react to future outbreaks of Ebola and other filoviral haemorrhagic fevers. This would also avoid duplication of efforts and to create collaboration at a global level to maximise European added value in health research.


Ongoing Projects

Encoding work packages, deliverables, milestones

To declare work packages, deliverables and milestones in ongoing projects, navigate to the "Project Submission Overview" and click, if available, "Reopen" and then the "Edit"-button to add the items of your work plan in web forms.

(Hint to speed up "Finalize": Finalise more than one item in a row without waiting for the browser to refresh. Not all these successive “Finalize” actions may be effective, but there is a good chance that more than one item is finalised per page reload.)

Uploading deliverable documents

Please navigate to the "Deliverables Submission" and click. Select your project and upload the documents. Of note the size of the documents is restricted <=20MB. If larger, try a 'reduced size pdf'.
