In the case of syndicated projects, a consortium contract (CA) is negotiated and signed between the partners in order to agree on the terms of your cooperation. The certification body is reviewed at the grant agreement stage and must be signed before the grant agreement is signed. Consortium agreements are mandatory for all interconnection projects, unless otherwise provided for in the work programme or the call for proposals. They deal with questions that will arise or may arise during the project (for example. B how to make decisions, resolve conflicts or protect intellectual property rights). The consortium agreement should be signed before the grant agreement. For more information, see Annotated Model Grant Agreement, Article 41.3 and Guidelines for The Establishment of a Consortium Agreement. For MSCA IF Global Fellowships, a partnership agreement is signed between the University of Leeds (host organisation) and the partner organisation outside the EU. “Insufficient” If your financial viability is insufficient, you cannot normally participate in the project. We will inform you immediately if you are excluded from participating in a project due to “insufficient” financial capacity, as well as remedies. In this case, the consortium must present a solution by following the steps of removing or replacing a participant (see above). In the absence of an acceptable solution, the preparation of the financial assistance may be terminated and the proposal may be rejected. Normally, the Commission imposes a tight timetable for the signing of the grant agreement and it is therefore very important that all CERN services concerned are either directly involved or fully informed of the preparation of the grant agreement and related documents.
When the legal, administrative and financial data are complete, we will determine the amount of pre-financing that will be paid to you at the beginning of the project. There is no standard amount or percentage for pre-financing. For measures with at least two reporting periods, it is generally up to the average amount of Community aid per period (i.e. maximum amount/number of periods). More details can be found in the Annotated Model Grant Agreement, Article 21.2. This process summarises the main steps to conclude the signature of your grant agreement: the LEAR provides reliable information to the Commission or agency concerned on behalf of the beneficiary. It appoints, on the Funding & Tenders portal, persons authorized to subscribe: finally, all beneficiaries sign the declaration of honour and the grant agreement. In addition, an addendum must be signed for ERC Grants and an additional consortium agreement must be concluded for interconnection projects. Select the action (i.e. the project) for which a grant agreement is being prepared.
Signature of the declaration of honour: as a beneficiary, you must sign a “declaration of honour” as soon as possible and no later than 6 weeks after the date on which you were invited to prepare the grant agreement. The grant agreement can only be signed when all beneficiaries have signed their honourable declarations. The grant agreement must be signed no later than three months after receipt of the results of your evaluation (Article 20(2) of the Conditions of Participation). To achieve this, there is a strict deadline for each step of the preparation of the agreement. If the JRC is favoured, it must sign Annex 3b (not Annex 3) as the accession form. The JRC and the Commission must sign the management agreement online at the time of signing the financial assistance. In the case of UNIGE, the grant agreement (for UNIGE project coordinators) and Form A (for UNIGE project partners) must bear the handwritten signatures of the Principal Investigator and the Rector before they can be signed electronically by PLSIGN, the whole process being coordinated by RS . .
