Project Work Ethics and Best Practice Paper Published

In FP6 and FP7 the Commission devolved many responsibilities to the consortia. This unintentionally opened the doors wide for abuse of trust within Projects.

This paper is an update to the original paper and includes some new aspects as a result of the initial calls in FP7. The document outlines the correct way to coordinate and participate in a FP Project. It covers subjects such as: Why Behave Ethically? - Building A Consortium - Submitting The Proposal - Evaluation - Contract Negotiation - Consortium Agreement - During The Project - Project End - Legal Role Of Coordinator - Impracticability Of Enforcing Contracts
