Horizon Europe implementation: EUA calls for an efficient and flexible Model Grant Agreement

As negotiations continue on the future Horizon Europe programme, the discussion on the Model Grant Agreement is fundamental for effective and smooth implementation. Not only does the Model Grant Agreement serve as the key contractual document between all parties, it is also the central user guide which helps beneficiaries fully understand and better interpret the programme rules.


EUA is advocating for three major principles that should guide the work of the Commission and the member states on the new Model Grant Agreement, with the ultimate goal of mitigating the complexity of the rules and to ensure major simplification. This policy paper outlines those principles and provides a series of informed recommendations to facilitate the work of policy makers.
