Q: Call on Wood-based Composites. There are three partners from Italy and an Inter-Universitary Consortium represents one of the partners. Additionally, there are two more universities that are independent partners, although, legally, they also belong to the InterUniversitary Consortium. Is there any problem regarding the inclusion of these three institutions, as independent partners ? Will they have independent budgets?
A: If the universities are independent as described in article 6 of the Rules for participation in FP7, then there should not be a problem for them to participate as independent partners and if they incur their costs related to the project separately then it seems reasonable that they will have their separate budgets. This is not an issue that will cause eligibility problems at stage 1. Any related issues will be verified at the negotiation stage. At stage one, it is important that the minimum participation requirements are satisfied i.e. "at least three legal entities must participate, each of which must be established in a Member State or associated country, and no two of which may be established in the same Member State or associated country.
