H2020 General Model Grant Agreement Version 2 is released.

The Model Grant Agreements for H2020 were updated in September.

 

The main changes compared to version 1 of the model grant agreement are as follows:

 

  • Article 20.6 “Currency for financial statements and conversion into euro” in order to allow beneficiaries with accounts in other currencies than euro to convert into euro all costs incurred independently of the currency in which they were incurred (similar to FP7 projects);

  • Article 21.2 “Pre-financing payment – Amount – Amount retained for the Guarantee Fund” in order to give the possibility to the consortium to receive the pre-financing payment at an earlier date, namely 10 days prior to the starting date of the action.

  • Article 38.1.2 “Information on EU funding – Obligation and right to use the EU emblem” in order to ensure more visibility of EU funding for any communication activity related to any infrastructure, equipment used and to major results of a H2020 action.

Guide for Grant Agreement Preparation V0.3 is released.

There has been an update of the Guide for Grant Agreement Preparations.

 

Unfortunately despite assurances to the contrary, the system will only allow one PLSIGN whose name is to appear in the preamble of the grant agreement or the accession form.

 

It is stated that if your Organisation requires more than one signature then this must be implemented by establishing an internal process in your organisation ensuring that the electronic signature in the system is executed only after all the necessary authorisations were given. These authorisations (signatures) must be collected, stored and archived locally following the usual management practice of the organisation, for instance via an internal paper based process.

 

We do not believe this procedure is correct. We believe that if you require 2 signatures then the software system should allow for this and it not be left up to your internal authorisations. We have also questioned the legality of this with the EU Lawyers – we await an answer.
