You have a set of options to select depending on the nature of the participant:

  • SC30 (special clause 30, applicable for FP7 if necessary. SC30 allows a partners to use a different cost model for his cost declaration (please refer to the Grant Agreement)
  • Add as third party will require you to provide the partners from which this participant will depend. Please note that only third parties with an SC10 (special clause 10), meaning declaring costs according to the Grant Agreement, have to be added.

Once you click the Add Participant button the participant is added to the list.

Terminate or Remove a Participant

To add or remove a partner, you have to use the pop-up menu of the participant you want to add or remove. The popup menu, depending on the transaction, will propose one, none, or both of these options:




Removing a partner will delete it completely from the participant list. This is the default behaviour in Negotiation. It is not necessary to keep track of partners who are not going to sign the Grant Agreement.


A terminated partner does not disappear from the project. If you terminate a partner, you will be requested a termination date which corresponds to the date the participant leaves the project. This is the default behaviour in Amendments.

titleTerminated participants are not displayed by default in the list

You will not see terminated partners by default in NEF. You have to request them to appear via the check-box which is displayed on top of the participant list:
