Om arrangementet

Grant Agreement preparation and the Consortium Agreement in Horizon Europe (1 dag) – Nivå 2

Kurset gir deg en introduksjon i å utarbeide en Grant Agreement, trinn for trinn. Kurset gjennomgår også andre formelle og uformelle avtaler mellom partnerne i et prosjekt, slik som hvordan man skal håndtere konfidensiell informasjon, hvilke forpliktelser partnerne har, samt ulike måter å håndtere intellektuell eiendom (IP). Vi gjennomgår hvordan man setter opp en god konsortieavtale, basert på den mye brukte DESCA malen, og gir eksempler på konsortieavtaler for ulike prosjekttyper. Kurset avsluttes med en gjennomgang av noen praktiske eksempler på utfordrende situasjoner som kan oppstå i et prosjekt, og hvordan en god konsortieavtale kan hjelpe til å løse problemer og forhindre at slike situasjoner oppstår.

Kurset holdes på engelsk, og kursleder er Europa Media.

The course gives you a step by step introduction to the Grant Agreement preparation. It also presents other important formal and informal arrangements among the project partners in a consortium, such as confidentiality, commitment, intellectual property and its protection. We will go through how to draw up an effective consortium agreement, based on the DESCA model consortium agreement and examples of consortium agreements for different project types. Finally, we will go through some real-life examples and discuss how to draw up an effective consortium agreement that helps to tackle such problems in the consortium.
