Legal and Financial Aspects of Horizon 2020

Shorter time-to-grant

The time-to-grant is set on „5+3“:

  • Information on the evaluation results must be received maximum 5 months after the call-deadline;
  • Another (maximum) 3 months to conclude the contract.
A longer period of time-to-grant is possible for ERC projects or for complex projects or on request of the consortium.
The EC can guarantee the 8 months because there are no negotiations anymore. Each proposal will be evaluated „as it is“, not as „what it could be“.

Also the fact that only electronic signatures will be used for H2020 projects will help to shorten the time-to-grant.
What's involved? - Signing Horizon 2020 grant agreements electronically.
