COVID-19
  • The Commission understands that the current containment measures taken at national level may have consequences on MSCA projects.
  • This may concern the regular mobility activities of MSCA fellows and other project staff as well as the participation of individuals in meetings and events organised by beneficiaries in the framework of MSCA projects.
  • To respond to these uncertainties, the European Commission is applying the maximum flexibility in the implementation of the programme, within the limits of the applicable legal framework.
  • The Research Executive Agency (REA) has informed all project coordinators about the possibility to invoke the “force majeure” clauses: REA will assess the circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
  • Project coordinators should liaise with their Project Officer as soon as possible to notify them of the situation and receive support.
  • The Commission is monitoring this situation very closely and will adopt any additional measure that may become necessary.
