Negotiate with third parties

Where other beneficiaries, partners or third parties are involved in a project, the Grant Registration Team (GRT) will coordinate and oversee the contract review process with the internal UCD support offices (UCD Legal, NovaUCD, Research Finance Office).  Any changes will be coordinated through the GRT and fed back to the PI or third party.

EU Consortium Agreement
The EU 'Consortium Agreement (CA)' is an internal agreement between members of the consortium, to set out their internal arrangements for implementing the grant. In Horizon2020 projects, the partners must prepare a Consortium Agreement (CA), unless otherwise stipulated in the call for proposals. The DESCA Consortium Agreement template is recommended for use in all UCD H2020 projects and the H2020 Guide for establishing a Consortium Agreement can be found H2020 Guide for establishing a Consortium Agreement can be found here.

  • Where UCD is leading (coordinating) a project, the Grant Registration Team will prompt you to fill in a template agreement and organise internal review by UCD Legal, NovaUCD and Research Finance Offices. Liaising with project partners is the responsibility of the PI.
  • Where UCD is a partner in a project, a consortium agreement will be drafted by the lead organisation and the UCD Grant Registration Team will organise the internal review by UCD Legal, NovaUCD and Research Finance Offices. Liaising with the lead organisation is the responsibility of the PI.
