Project life cycle

To ensure that projects which have been awarded an IEE grant live up to their expectations, their management is closely monitored by the EACI , which is the main contact point for project coordinators . This section contains all you need to know about the obligations and formalities to be met at each step of the management cycle.

Each project follows a similar life cycle, beginning with the negotiation of the grant agreement (the 'contract') with the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) and ending with payment.

Receiving public money for an IEE project means meeting certain obligations in the day-to-day management of a project, for instance as regards technical and financial reporting, and communication. The terms are all clearly laid down in the grant agreement signed by the EACI and the project beneficiaries in order to ensure transparency and accountability.

The section on 'Finalising your grant agreement' will guide you through the different steps of the negotiation process. While information on what is expected of you once the contract has been signed is available at 'Day-to-day management'.
