The Financial Closing of Horizon 2020 Remains Challenging

Science and knowledge are committed to research funding. H2020 funded projects are subject to strict regulations. In particular, the calculation of time sheets, personnel costs in compliance with reporting obligations are causing difficulties in practice. A misappropriated use of funds can have significant consequences: funds can be frozen, or whole promotions can be reclaimed.

Prepare Effectively for Evaluation

The Commission is now increasingly carrying out audits. In particular, the focused preparation for evaluation under Horizon 2020 is the focus of this training seminar. This is applicable to collaborative research and innovation projects, prestigious grants from ERC funds, or Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme under Horizon 2020. Create the right structures to withstand trials. Learn important details on the following topics:

  • Calculate staff costs correctly
  • Reporting under Horizon 2020
  • Special features of ERC funds and Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme
  • Financing for consortium contracts
  • Preparation for evaluation and audit
