How to join and use this online partnering community


  1. Go to the 'Register' icon at the top menu and complete the form. 
  2. Remember - the more details you include, the easier it will be for other participants to understand what your organisation is offering, and what kind of partners you need to complete your consortium. Starred fields are mandatory and your application cannot proceed without them.
  3. (Please note, your organisation address and phone number will not appear in your public listing for other organisations to see, but adding these will help the site admin to check your organisation.)

Authorising your account

  1. Once you have submitted the form, you will be sent an automatic email to confirm your application is being processed.
  2. Emails are sometimes filtered by your provider, corporate IT or application settings. If you don't receive an email, please check your Spam folder.
  3. It will take up to 48 hours (Mon-Fri) for the site admin to confirm your registration. Until your registration has been confirmed, you will not be able to search for partners.
  4. However, in the meantime, you can log into your account and add any other details if you wish - an organisation logo, or additional people from your organisation.
  5. Once your registration has been confirmed, you will receive an automatic email with your login details which will also include a link to authorise your account.

Searching for partners

  1. In the top menu on this page, click 'Search' to view and search listings
  2. On the left of the page is a search tool to help refine your selection - you can sort by country, by type of organisation and registrants' area(s) of interest based on the competition scope. Please note that if no registrants have yet specified a particular area of interest, it will not appear on the drop-down menu.
  3. Alternatively, to see who has newly registered, you can order by date of entry using the selection tool above the listing. 
  4. The search tool is hierarchical, so the second category you select will be a subset of the first. If you then wish to start a new search, please click 'Reset' on the Search tool before starting again.
