Coronavirus: Measures to address the situation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Research Council has put in place measures to assist grant holders and applicants with ongoing projects or who are starting projects in 2020.

Our objective is for the application review process for 2020 to be completed before Christmas, so that the funds can be put into circulation as early as possible in 2021.

Changes to ongoing projects

Our goal is to be as flexible as possible within the legal framework, and we have implemented a number of measures to remedy the situation. All significant changes to the projects are to be reported via My RCN web.


If you have any further questions about project changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, please contact us! You will find your case officer in the contract or on My RCN web.
