The Commission and the OECD have signed an administrative arrangement aiming to exploit synergies between their respective strands of work on monitoring and analysing R&I funding, policies and their impact. The arrangement identifies a number of priority areas for cooperation, including the digitisation of R&I, the productivity-inequality nexus and assessing the impact of R&I. This grant will support further analytical work in these priority domains, with a view to producing evidence to underpin further EU policies in these areas.
The standard evaluation criteria, thresholds, weighting for award criteria and the maximum rate of co-financing for this type of action are provided in parts D and H of the General Annexes.
This grant will be awarded without call for proposals in line with Article 190(1)(e) of the Rules of applications of Regulation (EU, Euratom) 966/2012, Regulation No 1268/2012 and Article 11(2) of the Rules for participation and dissemination in ""Horizon 2020 - the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020)"", Regulation (EU) No 1290/2013.
