Q: Can a company established in an EU /Associated Country but which is a daughter company of a non EU/Associated or ICPC Country participate and coordinate a project as long as it is 100 % owned by the mother company?
A: If the EU/Associated Country registered company is considered as an entity established in those countries it may therefore participate in FP7 projects and receive FP7 funding. However, since it is owned 100% by another legal entity it will not be considered as an independent legal entity and therefore will not be taken into account for the purposes of the requirement relating to minimum consortium composition (3 independent legal entities established in 3 different Member States/Associated Countries). If the requirements mentioned are fulfilled - by other consortium partners - the entity in question may participate.
