Grant agreement

If your proposal is accepted, you will be invited to sign a detailed contract called a 'grant agreement'.

As an applicant you may have to follow a number of steps at this stage:

  • provide further legal and administrative details not included in the proposal
  • be ready to amend your proposal as indicated in the evaluation report, if applicable

Payment of the grant

Grants are usually paid out in several instalments over the duration of the project. Once you have signed the grant agreement, you will receive a pre-financing payment which may be followed by one or more interim payments. You will receive final payment on completion of the project.

Interim and final payments are made subject to project deliverables. It is important to report on the progress of your project in accordance with the reporting calendar set out in the grant agreement.
