Q: The guide for applicants states the possibility to include additional partners ("if there are as-yet-unidentified participants in the project, the expected competences, the role of the potential participants and their integration into the running project should be described."). We will meet the problem by writing scientific description of work, within work packages, but moreover by filling in form A. Can we fill in a form A2 with an X partner and how do we handle the budget and forms A3 ? We do not understand how to implement this in the proposal and in the EPSS.
A: You can add unknown partners to the consortium, as long as the minimum conditions for participation are met (for a CP: at least 3 independent legal entities, each of which is established in a MS or AC, and no two of which are established in the same MS or AC). In part B you should clearly write the scientific description of work for all work packages and for all partners (including the work of the partners to be determined). In case you would like to add an additional partner at a later stage, you should clearly outline the expected competences, the role of the potential participants and their integration into the running project. Please explain, why you still have to find an unknown partner and when and how you are going to identify the partner. For the A-Forms I recommend to add a partner called "unknown". You should clearly indicate the sum to be allocated to the unknown partner.
