This grant agreement offers little room for adaptation. As a general rule, the agreement is not negotiable. You will find a template on this link: erc.europa.eu/sites/default/files/document/file/h2020-erc-suppl-aggr_en_v1.3.docx link on the eu eu Eu Funding & Tenders Portal: ec.europa.eu/research/participants/docs/h2020-funding-guide/cross-cutting-issues/ethics_en.htm For current developments. As regards the participation of UK bodies, the ERC refers to the following information from the Commission`s funding and tendering portal: ec.europa.eu/research/participants/docs/h2020-funding-guide/grants/applying-for-funding/find-partners_en.htm The other features of the ERC grant agreement concern the possibility for the lead controller to change host institution (grant portability) and the provisions on the commitment of the Principal Investor to invest in the project (time). In addition, the agreement contains specific clauses in the event of early termination of the project for scientific reasons or unavailability of the Principal Investigator. The agreement as a whole and its provisions are not negotiable. Only elements important for financial and contractual management, such as reporting periods and the amount of pre-financing, can be negotiated in such a way as to adapt to the specific administrative context of each project. Existing documents (for example. B.B permission to carry out experiments) do not yet have to be downloaded at the time of application. The Ethics Self Assessment should describe the documents that can be submitted later. If the funding project is recommended, a separate ethics review will be conducted, for which the corresponding documents will then have to be submitted. The FFG has prepared a comparative document highlighting the differences between the standard grant agreements for each initiative and the H2020 General MGA.
The document and other information is available under „Downloads“ (see below). Most of the provisions of the PM cannot be changed. However, individual details may be agreed individually with the European Commission/funding agency during the funding phase, such as for example. B.B the start of the project and the amount of pre-financing. On 26 June, the European Commission added new observations in version 5.2 of the H2020 General Assembly. The amendments contain, inter alia, clarifications, corrections and new provisions in favour of beneficiaries, which can be applied retroactively to grants signed in the form of the previous version. The revised model grant agreements are available on the participant portal on the reference website. An updated version of the commented standard financial agreement for projects funded under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme has just been published.
