Before the signature of the first Horizon 2020 grant, the legal representative of each beneficiary shall appoint a representative of the legal entity (LEAR). The legal representative signs a paper document in blue ink. Learn more about the LEAR appointment. Where joint and several liability has been requested but the declaration is not made as described above, the beneficiary shall not be considered a party to the grant agreement. This issue is treated as if the membership form had not been signed. PLSIGN signs amendments to grant agreements and PFSIGN signs financial statements through the same process. If the JRC is favoured, it must sign Annex 3b (not Annex 3) as the accession form. The JRC and the Commission must sign the management agreement online at the time of signing the financial assistance. Before signing the grant agreement, the PLSIGN of each beneficiary must sign a declaration of honour (“grant declaration” in the system) according to the same procedure as described in point 3 below. See the Declaration of Honour template for general grants and a separate honour statement template for low-value grant agreements. The Commission prepares the grant agreement for signature.
A PDF document, digitally sealed to ensure its security, reliability and authenticity, is provided via the electronic exchange system of the Funding & Tenders portal (My Area). See also the video of the “electronic signature of grant documents” When developing a grant agreement, each beneficiary chooses one or more legal signatories for the project and each of them can sign online. In order to promote knowledge of the policy, structure, funding rules, while explaining how to develop a successful project proposal for the same program, the research area organized a seminar on November 10, 2016 at the Auditorium – Di Fortunato Room – VI floor of the Athens Palace (via Gramsci 89/91). The relevant contact details of the coordinating organisation (CoCo, LEAR) and the relevant participant (PaCo, LEAR) are informed if a registration form has been signed. As you know, Horizon 2020 is the one funded by the European Commission to fund research activities. The program has been running since January 1, 2014 and continues until December 31, 2020. It will help the European Union address global challenges by providing researchers and innovators with the tools they need to implement their projects and ideas. Contacts with participants (PaCo) or coordination contacts (CoCos) must select legal signatories (LSIGN) and financial signatories (FSIGNs) from the lists established by the LEAR for a particular project. They are then called project Legal Signatories (PLSIGNs) and Project Financial Signatories (PFSIGNs). If you need more information about the roles and appointment processes of the portal, please see the section on roles and access rights.
