For information on research & innovation in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak, please visit the European Research Area (ERA) Corona PlatformYou will find a list of FAQ that could be interesting to all of you working with H2020 projects such as
|1. Is there any possibility to rapidly re-direct work in on-going Horizon 2020 projects to help tackling the Covid-19 outbreak?|
|Amendments should in principle not imply changes to the project that wouldcall into question the award decision. However, due to the current situation, if reorienting your project might contribute to tackling the Coronavirus crisis, this could be granted (via an amendment), upon request by beneficiaries (assessed case-by-case by the funding body).|
2. Is there any possibility to extend the project duration of Horizon 2020 grants due to the Covid-19 situation?
|Yes, beneficiaries may request an amendment for an extension of up to 6 months of initial project duration due to the Covid-19 situation. Such requests will be handled favourably and in a speedy manner. Any request beyond the 6 month period mentioned before will be granted based on case-by-case assessment by the funding body. However, the maximum grant amount indicated in Article 5 H2020 MGA cannot be increased.|
3. Are evaluations and monitoring reviews still taking place?
|Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, until further notice, all evaluations are carried out remotely using video or web-conference facilities. All contracted experts will receive further instructions from the call coordinator or EU services. An amendment of their contract is not necessary.|
4. Related to the Covid-19 outbreak, is it possible in Horizon 2020 grants to postpone the starting date of the action?
|Postponement of the starting date of the action is possible for grant agreements about to be signed (in Grant Agreement Preparation stage) and, via an amendment, for grant agreements already signed but with a starting date in the future (no work has started yet). A starting date fixed later in time will delay the pre-financing payment.|
If it is not possible to carry out any work under the action, beneficiaries may also request to suspend the implementation of the action (Article 49(1) H2020 MGA). However, costs incurred during action suspension cannot be charged.
And many more.
