CORDIS services

Get the most out of CORDIS

You will need to have an EU Login account to access certain CORDIS services like your Research*eu and Results Pack subscriptions, email notifications and CORDIS Wire.

To create a new CORDIS profile, simply use your EU Login email and password to sign in.

If you already had a profile before CORDIS moved to EU Login and you are using the same email address, then you can just sign in with your EU Login email and password.

If your EU Login account uses a different email address to the one you used to sign into CORDIS before, you will no longer be able to access your old profile on CORDIS. You can create a new profile or contact the help desk to change your old CORDIS email address.

When you create a new CORDIS profile, you will asked to first create your EU Login account.

If you had a CORDIS profile before, make sure you use the same email address when you create your EU Login account. This will allow you to continue to access your CORDIS profile and services.

EU Login will also allow you sign into other EU websites such as the Funding & Tenders portal and the EU Publications website.

This information is stored on EU Login and can be changed through your EU Login account.

Each time you log into CORDIS, your email address, first and last names are copied across from EU Login. You will need to log out and log in again if you want any changes to be effective immediately on CORDIS.

For other questions related to your account, please also consult the EU Login help pages (or these help pages for European Commission users).

The Wire application enables registered users to publish articles related to EU research on the News & Events service and linked to projects on CORDIS. All articles are moderated by CORDIS editors before publication.

During their publishing lifecycle, News and Event articles go through the following statuses:

  • Draft: the contributor has created an article, which can still be edited and previewed before submission.
  • Submitted: the contributor has submitted the article and it is being reviewed by the CORDIS moderator.
  • Published: the moderator has accepted the article and it is available online on CORDIS.
  • To be revised: the moderator has asked the contributor to make changes to the article, which can then be submitted again for moderation.

The contributor is informed by email when their article has been published or needs to be revised. Contributors can update their published articles themselves by setting them into revision and resubmitting the updated article for publication.

The CORDIS Wire moderator aims to respond to submissions within two working days. Within reason, there are no limits to the number of submissions a contributor can make and having an article refused does not bar the contributor from submitting other articles.

We particularly welcome articles linked to EU-funded H2020 and FP7 projects. We can also accept topical and newsworthy information that is directly related to EU research and innovation.

Content that does not fulfil the following criteria will be refused:

  • Subjects unrelated to European research or innovation
  • Commercial advertisements
  • Parochial information of interest to a very limited audience
  • Knowingly inaccurate information or copyright breaches
  • Defamatory or offensive content

We reserve the right to edit submissions for grammatical and spelling mistakes and to add thematic categorisations if required.

We make every effort to ensure that the service runs efficiently but we do not guarantee the level of service performance, we will not compensate for any breaks or loss in service and we cannot be held liable for any losses caused by fraudulent use of the service.
