Horizon 2020 Fact Sheets

The aim of the below listed Fact Sheets is to provide an overview of the different Horizon 2020 cost categories relevant for the EUROfusion project and to inform about general and specific conditions for costs to be eligible. The collection of Fact Sheets and Annexes is specifically designed to serve the EUROfusion beneficiaries and linked third parties as guidelines for their daily project-related administrative duties.

They are reviewed and updated at regular intervals throughout the year, as soon as new relevant information is brought to the Coordinator’s attention. For any inquiries or suggestions for improvement, please contact Melanie John of the Coordinator Unit via phone +49 89 3299-1438 or via email: melanie.john [at] ipp.mpg.de.

Please note that the Fact Sheets neither constitute legally binding documents nor release EUROfusion’s beneficiaries and linked third parties from their individual responsibility and liability for sound financial administration and reporting.
