Pre-draft of Annotated Model Grant Agreement for Horizon Europe published
30. Jul 2021
On 23 July 2021, the European Commission published a pre-draft of the Annotated Model Grant Agreement (AGA) for Horizon Europe on the Funding & Tenders Portal. Already at the beginning of this year the Model Grant Agreement (MGA) for Horizon Europe has been published, which will serve as a template for the grant agreements between the Commission or the executive agencies and the beneficiaries the new framework programme.
The pre-draft of the AGA that has now been made available is intended to support the contractual partners in interpreting the grant agreement and contains, in addition to the individual paragraphs of the new MGA, further explanations and examples for related assistance. Analogous to the Horizon Europe MGA, the annotated version relies on continuity to its predecessor in Horizon 2020. Changes are therefore mainly made in those text passages where also changes in the MGA were included, such as the calculation of personnel costs with the help of daily rates and the redefinition of the roles of third parties in the project.
For further information on the MGA and AGA for Horizon Europe, the project management team at KoWi is at your disposal.
In October 2021, KoWi will also host a networking event in German language entitled "The new Annotated MGA - Lost in explanation?" as part of the series of events "KoWi vernetzt – Alternativ zur BuTa 2021". More information concerning this event will be published in this newsletter.
