Eranet Consortium Agreement
Autor: Anna Pilsniak. Kategorie: Bez kategorii .
In principle, new participants can join the consortium after the signing of the grant agreement (GA) through an amendment. As long as new participants (from Member States or associated countries) are added before the additional appeal is published, these new participants could still participate in this call and thus benefit from funding from the EU contribution. However, the EU`s maximum contribution cannot be changed once the GA has been signed (or even after an evaluation of a proposal). Even if a member joins the existing consortium and contributes to the joint transnational appeal, this would not increase the EU`s contribution. The consortium agreement must be signed in a timely manner for the signing of the grant agreement. The consortium must confirm to the Commission that the consortium agreement has been signed. They do not have to submit them to the Commission. Applicants must indicate the results of the project in their proposal. These include those required in the standard grant agreement with respect to the co-financed appeal. If the consortium plans additional activities, they should also be supported by the necessary results.
ERA-NET can continue to apply national funding rules. However, they are invited to harmonize the rules and procedures for applying joint appeals and actions. To this end, it should be taken into account that the subsidy agreements to be concluded with the final beneficiaries set the conditions for the implementation of the appeal and the financing of the projects in accordance with the H2020 participation rules and the EU financial regulation. Activities related to the preparation, implementation and follow-up of the co-financed appeal are not taken into account. The Commission reimburses 33% of the financial aid paid to third parties (or the costs of implementing projects in the case of in-kind benefits, erA-NET). However, the consortium may choose to use part of the EU`s contribution to support its activities until the corresponding costs are declared eligible and the EU contribution does not exceed 33% of the financing of transnational projects and unit costs for additional activities by the partners.
