Why do I need to sign a Consortium Agreement in addition to the Grant Agreement?

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The Grant Agreement establishes the main rights and obligations of participants towards the European Commission and is, generally, based on models prepared to be applied in all projects. This agreement lacks, therefore, detailed provisions on the specific project and consortium.

Thus, it is highly recommended (if not mandatory) that participants sign between them a Consortium Agreement aimed to establish in detail the rules on the internal management of the consortium, namely in terms of IP matters.
