Learn all the essentials of the financial rules in Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe: Planning, calculating, reporting, reviewing.

A sound understanding of the financial rules of the Horizon 2020 Annotated Model Grant Agreement is key for a proper implementation of your research and innovation project.

We will introduce the essentials of finances in H2020/HEU to make sure you get things right from the very beginning.

Topics covered: 

  • How to harmonise national accounting protocols with the H2020/HEU Grant Agreement articles
  • Budgeting and planning: Why it is the most crucial part? 
  • What is a cost reimbursement? What is lump sum financing?  
  • Actual costs and unit costs? Which one should I choose? 
  • What makes any cost eligible? How to make them eligible?
  • Linking a cost to the project? What makes them direct costs? 
  • Can I report indirect costs? If not, why not?

At the end of this webinar, you will get a complete picture of the key issues of finances in H2020 and HEU.
