Eit Specific Grant Agreement

The relationships between the EIT and the innovation communities, as recipients of the EIT grant, are defined in agreements defining their respective rights and obligations, ensuring an adequate level of coordination and defining the notification mechanism, payment and control mechanisms, monitoring and evaluation of the activities and outcomes of the innovation community. The EIT is part of the Horizon 2020 framework programme; This is why the texts of the agreements are based on the Horizon 2020 rules and the standard Horizon 2020 models. The agreements are signed by the Director of the EIT as the legal representative of the EIT and the CEO of the Innovation Community as the legal representative of the innovation community. A community innovation partner can benefit from the EIT grant by joining the VPA by signing an internal agreement with the legal entity of the innovation community and by signing the membership form (Annex IV of the VPA).
