A Consortium Agreement defines the rules between the partners of an FP7-collaborative project; the European Commission is not involved nor does it sign this document. Unless otherwise stated in the call, a Consortium Agreement is obligatory for FP7-collaborative projects. For Marie Curie Initial Training Networks (ITN-Projects), a Consortium Agreement is recommended and has become normal practice.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding Consortium Agreements. Please send us, as early as possible, a copy of the draft Consortium Agreement for your project. We will check the IP and Access Rights together with Unitectra.
