Many EU funding programmes require that a proposal be based on a structured collaboration between a group of partners (consortium) who share tasks and responsibilities. Identifying potential partners and setting up the collaboration framework is thus a key preparatory task for any actor wishing to benefit from EU financial support. Partnerships are often tricky and subject to a number of requirements. This is especially true with regard to transnational partnerships as cultural and linguistic discrepancies may lead to different approaches and can make communication more difficult. Aside from being a legal obligation imposed by the Commission, a clear delimitation of the areas of responsibility and of the respective rights and obligations is crucial. This can ensure that no misunderstandings occur.
The EUcoach helps you in defining, and subsequently, in formulating the framework conditions and rules of procedure of the project consortium. It will provide assistance in drafting all the legal documents requested by the Commission in the application procedure i.a. the ‘Letter of Intent’ and the ‘Consortium Agreement’.
