Projects funded by other Programmes than the FP7 and H2020 are eligible too if they join a Project Group led by a project funded under the FP7 and H2020 programme.

The Horizon Results Booster (HRB) aims to provide a tangible contribution to the dissemination of results and recommendations of research projects related to the European Commission Priority areas.
Trust-IT is one of the founding Partners of HRB and proudly delivers the Portfolio Dissemination services (Service 1, Module A and Module B).
