Commission Staff Changeover:
In the run-up to Horizon2020, we would expect that many Project Officers will change jobs or retire.
We would thus emphasise that any verbal agreements or understandings you have with Project Officers regarding specific projects be formalised on paper as soon as possible to prevent any misunderstandings with a new Project Officer.
The Run-up to Horizon 2020:
Following on from the above post, there are many changes underway in the Commission in the run-up to Horizon2020. Some units have been or will be completely restructured. These changes could have an impact on your Project as Commission members of staff either leave or change positions. Please ensure that you protect yourselves and your projects.
The next few months will be very exciting as the summer is over and more information about the Financial Rules of Horizon2020 are about to be released. We will be sending out information as we get it so please ensure that you follow us on twitter to get the latest news ASAP
