Diligent project management and the correct handling of project funds are important prerequisites for the successful implementation of an EU project.
For this purpose, the basic documents, in particular the Grant Agreement and its annotated version (Annotated Model Grant Agreement), but also the Consortium Agreement must be consulted.
However, project managers also have to find their way around the European Commission's electronic project management system (Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal), and keep track of payment flows and reporting obligations in the project. Outside of financial management, it is important to keep an eye on regulations regarding the dissemination and exploitation of projects.
The following pages provide an initial overview of the various schemes, both in collaborative research and in the context of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and the ERC. Please contact us if you have any further questions!
