Frequently Asked Questions

How can I update or publish a project URL?

If you are a Project Coordinator or Participant, you can contact the CORDIS Help Desk to request to add or update the link to your project’s website.

However, please ensure that you contact your Project Officer to ask them to also update the project URL in the European Commission’s internal systems, which are the source of information on CORDIS.

How can I update project information published on CORDIS?

If you are a Project Coordinator or Participant, please contact your Project Officer, who must update the project information in the European Commission’s internal systems, which are the source of information on CORDIS.

Project data is based on the grant agreement so contractual amendments will often lead to changes on CORDIS.  Report Summaries come from the publishable summaries submitted by projects, which must need to be resubmitted and approved before any changes are made on CORDIS.  Results in Brief, including translations, can be updated directly on CORDIS.
