Brussels, 12 Feb 2004
A workshop on the European Commission's new model contract for Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) projects and its implications for consortium agreements will take place on 17 March in Hamburg, Germany.
Under the new FP6 contract, research consortiums have had their powers increased considerably. Consortiums are now able to make changes to the work plan, add partners, control the budget and run calls for proposals without prior permission from the European Commission.
The workshop is a response to these new circumstances, and will focus on the new decision-taking framework for Integrated Projects, as well as issues of intellectual property and financial management.
