Q: What are the conditions for participation of US partners in NMP? Are they full partners? Can they get EU funding.? If not, does the budget associated with their participation have to be given in the proposal?
A: The US partner should fill in everything and will accede to the contract. The US partners (like partners from other advanced industrialised countries like Canada and Japan, cannot receive EU funding. They muse seek funding from the NSF or other such agency. However, the fact that the US partner gets funding from NSF or other US agency rather than the EU does not mean that they are not a full partner in terms of rights and obligations, IPR and so on. In addition, evaluators have to know the effort (financial and other) involved on the part of the US partner. And finally, it is worth remembering that in exceptional cases, if it is absolutely essential and in the European interest, a US partner can receive some EU funding. So the more information about how essential the US partner is, the better.
