Elena's Movie Review Madness

Reviews from my 11-year old mind!

A consortium agreement is a binding contract signed between the partners of a Horizon 2020 interconnection project. The Horizon 2020 grant agreement (Article 41(3)) states that `beneficiaries shall have internal provisions as regards their implementation and coordination in order to ensure the proper implementation of the action. These internal agreements must be the subject of a written “consortium agreement” between the beneficiaries under Horizon 2020.┬áSo what do you need to know about this agreement and the implementation process? Keep reading to learn more. Desca (Development of a Simplified Consortium Agreement) is the most popular of several Horizon 2020 model consortium agreements. It is the result of a cooperation project supported by the European Commission. Its result is a typical consortium agreement that anyone can use as the basis for a specific consortium agreement for a given project. The DESCA consortium agreement is available for free download. That said, there is one important point to consider: preparing a Horizon 2020 consortium agreement requires a significant investment of time, resources and legal resources. If the project is not funded by the European Commission, such an allocation of money and time will be mostly (and unfortunately) lost. Note: The costs associated with the preparation of a consortium agreement are not reimbursable, as the consortium agreement should be signed before the grant agreement is signed. However, costs related to the updating of the consortium agreement shall be eligible if they are incurred during the duration of the action.

A professional legal advisor experienced in such consortium agreements offers you the following services: Although it is not mandatory, we advise you to refer to the structure and guidelines of the DESCA when establishing a consortium contract. As I said above, it is advisable to use experienced legal assistance in the preparation of this agreement. The DESCA presentation should only be referenced as a means of structuring the agreement in general and taking into account important aspects to be taken into consideration. As with FP7, several institutions and groupings have developed model consortia agreements for Horizon 2020, sometimes with different approaches. . . .
