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. To fully understand what should be included into the Consortium Agreements and how, we will introduce the rights and obligations deriving from the Grant Agreement and discuss what other types of legal agreements may exist before signing the Consortium Agreement.
We will conduct a hands-on workshop on consortium agreements for H2020 projects, during which 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.
