When business meets the environment

Contract & Finance

From the contract negotiation to the reception of payments, this section gives access to the official documents, guidelines and models necessary at each step of the process when managing an eco-innovation project.

Negotiating the contract

Once the project has been selected for funding, the management cycle kicks off. Before the project can start and first payments can be made, the contract needs to be negotiated and signed.

Implementing the project

The implementation of projects is closely monitored by the EASME on behalf of the European Commission to ensure that projects realise their full potential. During the implementation process the projects submit three types of reports. The interim and final reports must include a financial report.
