Imi Consortium Agreement

Finally, experts rank applications based on score and the IMI Board approves the results of the assessment. The consortium that submitted the best application is then invited to continue with level 2. The thematic text is prepared by efpia`s consortium of joint partners and, after extensive discussions with the European Commission and consultations with different groups (including the IMI Scientific Committee and the States Representatives Group), the text of the call for tenders is sent to the IMI Management Board for approval. Before an IMI project can be launched, the consortium, in collaboration with the IMI Programme Office, must finalise two important documents: the grant agreement and the consortium agreement (called the project agreement in IMI1 projects). On 2-3 October 2020, the 3TR consortium met virtually for its first progress meeting. More than 220 participants gathered to discuss the progress of the project one year after the launch.

Theme ideas can come from EFPIA companies or associated partners or from proposals from external organisations. Do you need more information on preparing and signing grant agreements? Watch this Horizon 2020 webinar for coordinators of successful proposals. Horizon 2020 also has, for the first time, model consortia agreements for MSCA-ITN. These were developed by the Federal Working Group of EU Advisers in German Universities and Universities (BAK) and the League of European Research Universities (LERU). Both models are based on DESCA. All project partners must sign a consortium agreement defining the rights and obligations of the participants and addressing issues such as governance, accountability and intellectual property rights. The agreement should be adapted to the needs of each project. A model developed by EFPIA shows what a consortium agreement could look like. Consortia can also use alternative models if they wish….
