DESCA releases new Model Consortium Agreement for Horizon 2020
The "Development of a Simplified Consortium Agreement (DESCA)" consortium released its model Consortium Grant Agreement (CGA) for Horizon 2020. You can download the model agreement in with or without elucidation notes from the DESCA site.
DESCA was the most used model for consortium agreements in the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7).
The core group of the DESCA consortium is composed of the Helmholtz and Fraunhofer associations (coordinators), the Association Nationale de la Recherche et de la Technologie (ANRT), the European Association of Research and Technology Organisations (EARTO), the European Association of Chambers of Commerce (Eurochambres), the European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations (KoWi), the League of European Research Universities (LERU), the Applied Research Organisation in Finland (VTT) and the Centre for Innovation and Technology in North Rhine-Westphalia (ZENIT).
DESCA also relies on a broad consultation group composed of around 160 experts from academia, research organisations and industry. SCIPROM is happy to be a part of this consultation group.
The consortium is independent and does not receive any funding from the European Commission (EC).
