In case it should prove necessary during the process of a Project that alterations must be made to the Grant Agreement, they must be applied for to the European Commission. Upon successful approval of the alteration within the GA, it becomes effective by means of an Amendment. The main reasons (this list is not exhaustive) for an alteration of the Grant Agreement, hence an Amendment, are:

  • Budgeting deferrals
  • Change of Partners within the Consortium / adjustment of contact data
  • No cost extensions
  • Transfers
  • Suspensions

As with all issues relating to an EU Project, the Project Coordinator alone corresponds with the European Commission. Should an Amendment be compiled within the scope of a Project, the Project Coordinator must be informed in any case. If you are participating in an EU Project and anticipate the compilation of an Amendment, we recommend including EU GrantsAccess.
