Sixth Framework Programme: Checklist for a Consortium Agreement (draft)
Document Date: 2002-12-02
Document Type: Supporting document for proposers
The Consortium agreement is an agreement between the participants in indirect actions of the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). A consortium agreement is required in all projects financed under the sixth Framework Programme except when exempted by means of the call for proposals. The Communities are not a party to these agreements and play no role in the choice made by the parties of the clauses they deem appropriate to the nature and purpose of their collaboration and to their interests.
This checklist is provided to assist contractors to identify issues which may arise during the implementation of a research project and which may be facilitated or governed by means of the consortium agreement.
