Horisont 2020 running projects #

Granted Horizon 2020 projects will run as planned, with the necessary adjustments given the current situation.

NTNU researchers participating in Horizon20202 projects are advices to engage in a close dialogue with the project partners and especially the project coordinator, as well as the Project Officer in the European Commission if NTNU is the coordinator.

If the current situation makes it impossible for NTNU as a project partner to fulfill its obligations in the project, the NTNU researchers participating in the project must contact the project coordinator immediately, who in turn will contact the Project Officer in the European Commission.

Please also consult the European Commission’s new webpage European Research Area (ERA) Corona Platform.

For NTNU Horizon 2020 coordinators specifically #

If NTNU is leading the Horizon 2020 project, the NTNU coordinator should engage in a close and running dialogue with the project partners and establish digital communication platforms to secure the internal communication in the project.

It is in particular important that the NTNU coordinator secures feedback from the partners regarding their ability to keep their commitments and deliverables in the project. The partners have the duty to notify NTNU as the project coordinator if they are not able to fulfill their obligations in the project.

If such a situation occurs that partners are unable to fulfill their obligations, the NTNU coordinator must contact the Project Officer in the European Commission immediately. The situation will then be assessed on a case-by-case basis according to article 51 in the Grant Agreement about force majeure.

Moreover, the NTNU coordinator is expected to immediately take all necessary actions to limit any damage due to force majeure (e.g. try to cancel the flight ticket, claim the reimbursement from the cancellation insurance, if applicable).

Costs in the project will be eligible, if they fulfil the general eligibility conditions set out in Article 6 in the Grant Agreement, like any other costs incurred under the project. For example, if a meeting or event cannot take place due to force majeure, travel and accommodation costs may still be charged to the project if they fulfil the cost eligibility conditions, even if the beneficiary did not travel and did not take part in the meeting or event.

If force majeure entails extra costs for the implementation of the project, these costs may be eligible if necessary for the implementation for the project, e.g. if a cancelled conference is reorganized at a later stage.

Please note that the maximum grant amount cannot be increased.
