In order to carry out an EU project in a successful way, project management has to be well planned and project funds have to be used in an effective manner. This includes enquiring constitutional documents such as the Rules for Participation and the Grant Agreement. Furthermore, participants of EU projects have to make themselves familiar with the web-based Participant Portal of the European Commission, and to keep track of cash flows and project reporting requirements. Rules concerning Marie Skłodowska-Curie and ERC project implementation may partly differ from the provisions described in the following. The following websites provide an introduction to the different steps to be taken when implementing a project.
Please note: The European Commission has started a dedicated FAQ-section for project management issues concerning the current COVID-19 outbreak.
