What: "How to avoid financial errors in FP7"
When: Brussels, 19 March 2012 from 10:00 to 12:20

This is an event launching a communication campaign which aims to reduce financial errors in research expenditure.
The communication campaign reflects the Commission's efforts to share with stakeholders information and knowledge about the most common financial errors in FP7, and how to avoid making them.
The purpose of this event is to raise awareness within the research community of the importance of submitting error free cost claims as a way to speed up payments, avoid the reimbursement of ineligible amounts and liquidated damages and ultimately to achieve more reliable and error free financial reporting.
The Commission will present the ten most common financial errors in cost claims for research grants and it will outline its plans to reach out to stakeholders and assist them in their efforts to provide error free cost claims.
