The following pages provide advise and tips about the general management of the EU funded Projects. The financial management of  EU funded projects (General conditions of the Grant Agreement) and compliance with the University legislations are different in FP7 and Horizon 2020 projects, so please refer to the correct section of the website for information.

FP7 grant management is stipulated by the terms of the Grant Agreement, Guide to Financial Issues and any special clauses related to the project.

Recipients of Horizon 2020 grants are required to manage the administration of their funds in accordance with the Commission’s regulation as specified in the Annotated Model Grant Agreement. More information on the reporting obligations will be added as it becomes available by the Commission.
