New info sheet available: FP7 3rd Country Involvement

Experience with the first calls in FP7 shows that the administrative and legal aspects related to the participation of organisations from so-called Third Countries are often a particular challenge for consortia. Not least, this can lead to significant delays in grant negotiations.

The Commission has therefore prepared a quick guide that focuses on the cooperation with third country participants in the 7th Framework Programme. The guide was prepared to assist future consortia in submitting proposals and to speed up the negotiation process. It can be downloaded from the Euresearch site.
