Q: What is meant by "Coordinator" in the ITN proposals? (All Calls)
A: Among the various partners in a network, there will be a coordinating institution. The coordinator is the partner identified in the grant agreement who, in addition to its obligations as a beneficiary, is obliged to carry out the specific coordination tasks provided for in the grant agreement. The coordinator shall be the intermediary between the partners and the REA (with the exceptions foreseen in the grant agreement) and responsible for monitoring and reporting progress. The network coordinator should therefore have the appropriate management expertise, as well as the technical expertise. The network coordinator's tasks also include administrative and financial matters, such as arranging the formalities for all beneficiaries to accede to the grant agreement, general liaison with the REA, the submission of all documents, including cost statements and technical reports, and the distribution of the financial contribution from the Community. The coordinator institution is always participant nr. 1 in the application.
