Training: Legal and Financial Issues in Horizon 2020 Art. 185 and Art. 187

Date: July 01, 2016
Organiser: NCP Academy – ISCIII
Event Categories: Training

Concept & Aim

Although one of the main aims of H2020 was to develop a simpler programme in terms of participation and to this end the general administration and management procedures have been simplified, in H2020 there are also a huge number of related initiatives, mainly Public-Public and Public-Private Partnerships that are partially funded by the EU, and that entail more than one third of the total EU H2020 budget.

As these initiatives are partially funded by Member States and/or by the Industry, and in order to take into account their specific operating needs, it was decided that deviations from the H2020 Rules for Participation should be minimum. Because of these deviations, there are different models of the H2020 Grant Agreement (MGA). This makes the management of the funded actions more complicated to participants and administrators and therefore involves extra commitment on behalf of the Legal and Financial NCPs.

Main deviations to H2020 are among others: funding instruments and rates, potential beneficiaries, IPR regulations, electronic and management submission system, individual vs collective financial responsibility, reporting requirements, etc.

Legal and Financial NCPs, (many times approached by thematic NCPs), are usually in the ‘first line of fire’ when questions related to the preparation and implementation of actions funded by these programmes raised up for attending questions and doubts related to these programmes.

In order to be able to give the highest level of support to thematic NCPs and potential beneficiaries there is a clear need for capacity building among the L&F NCP community, based on thematic interventions, best practice sharing and benchmarking.

The main aim of this training was to:

  • Present the H2020 related programmes, in particular Arts 185 and 187
  • Identify main deviations from H2020 Rules for Participation
  • Exchange knowledge, experiences and “lessons learnt” on related programmes among experienced NCPs
  • Discuss major hurdles of these deviations from the beneficiary perspective and identify potential improvements
