CORDIS content

Discover our collections of project data, editorial articles and publications

These collections of up-to-date articles focus on a specific theme for specialised audiences; they are available online and as print brochures. They are produced in close collaboration with European Commission services and often support policy initiatives and events.

Our regular magazine highlights the most promising project outcomes in a range of domains, with a focus on a particular theme in every issue. It is published 10 times a year; you can download or order each issue and also subscribe for free postal delivery worldwide. Research*eu is mostly based on Results in Brief and News articles but also includes project interviews, an agenda of events, a project of the month and catching up with projects featured in the past.

These articles summarise the main outcomes at the end of each selected project, explaining the project's achievements and shining a spotlight on the next steps. They are written by CORDIS science writers in collaboration with project participants and involving the EC project officer as needed.

Starting with Horizon 2020, projects inform the European Commission of their open access publications, which are then listed on CORDIS. These can be peer reviewed articles, conference proceedings, thesis dissertations, book chapters or monographic books. Links to FP7 publications are retrieved on the fly from OpenAIRE on the project factsheets.

Projects are at the heart of the CORDIS repository and contain the public information from the grant agreements once they have been signed (objectives, dates, programme, call, funding amounts, participants, etc). CORDIS stores project information from all the EU research framework programmes, from FP1 until Horizon 2020.

For Horizon 2020 projects, CORDIS publishes links to the project's public deliverables (or documents describing them) after they have been approved by the EC project officer. The deliverables are classified by type: document or report; websites, patent fillings, videos etc; demonstrator, pilot, prototype; Open Research Data Pilot; ethics requirements.

For each reporting period in a project's lifecycle, the participants submit a periodic or final publishable summary on the project's context, progress, work performed, main results so far and expected impact. Once approved by the EC project officer, the summary is published on CORDIS as a Report Summary.

Our daily news articles provide topical updates from ongoing projects, as well as articles contributed directly by project teams using CORDIS Wire. They are based on media reports or project announcements and are classified as scientific breakthroughs, new products and technologies or policy recommendations.

The events calender lets you know where and when project participants will organise or attend conferences or meetings, including events announced via CORDIS Wire.

Projects are implemented on the basis of framework programmes, work programmes and topics.
