The course will provide the participants with a sound understanding of the options for the scope and content of consortium agreements that can effectively complement the Grant Agreement in Horizon 2020 projects.
The participants will work in groups on different case studies to discuss how to draw up an effective Consortium Agreement. For this exercise, we will introduce different real-life scenarios with problematic and challenging situations in H2020 projects such as conflicts on IPR and exploitation issues, disagreements on dissemination and publications, delays and quality problems in reports and deliverables, risks on financial management, and other budgetary problems. Under the moderation of a workshop leader, the participants will discuss specific clauses in a Consortium Agreement that could help to effectively tackle such situations. Understand default rights and obligations from the GA concerning financial issues, management of IPR, and dissemination exploitation of results.
