To give you some extra background, here are some of the changes we observed in the Grant Agreement Preparation phase:

  • The pre-financing amount

The pre-financing amount, which is 40% of the total EU contribution (minus the 5% that goes to the Guarantee Fund / Mutual Insurance Mechanism) in the projects which are currently in Grant Agreement Preparation (this applies to you in case your proposal was favourably evaluated and invited to GAP under the Horizon Europe calls). As of today, we are not sure if this will be harmonised across the different clusters / calls / executive agencies and whether it will stay the same. Nonetheless, since the Horizon Europe scheme has started only recently, the amount may change as the years go by. In Horizon 2020, for instance, the pre-financing amount reached 60-80% most of the time.

  • The Researchers and Associated Partners two new tabs

Under the Associated Partners tab, you can simply introduce the associated partner organisations by searching their PIC. The Researchers tab, on the other hand, is unfortunately not prefilled with the information and data introduced in proposal Part A and needs to be filled in from scratch for all the partners. This might be because the Commission considers that the staff indicated at the proposal stage may have changed in the meantime, and for implementation, you should specify the actual names. Still, we are not sure why the original data does not appear in this section.

We recently caught up with Gabor before his course in Lisbon and learned about his extensive experience, entertaining anecdotes from previous courses, his favourite parts of teaching, and questions he often receives on Horizon Europe costs, audits, and finances.

Top basics to watch out for in Cluster 4 Digital, Industry and Space
Cluster projects shall be in general guided by two main messages: “researchers shall become innovators” and “research results need to be transformed into useful innovations”. In projects funded under Cluster 4, the European Commission will support digital, space and key enabling technologies that are strategically important for Europe’s industrial future.
