We are pleased to announce that the revised general and specific H2020 model grant agreements version 5.0 were adopted.
The main changes in the revised MGAs are:
• Article 29.3 'Open access to research data' to provide for third party access to research data in health actions in cases of public health emergencies;
• Article 34 'Ethics and research integrity' to align the provisions on ethical and]research integrity principles to the new European Code for Research Integrity adopted ALLEA (All European Academies);
• Marie Skłodowska -Curie Actions (MSCA) MGAs to align the MGAs with the MSCA Work Programme 2018-2020.
The revised model grant agreements are published on the Participant Portal, under the Reference Documents site. They include a 'history of changes' with a link to MGA versions showing the specific changes (the links will work shortly).
The only new rules applying retroactively as they are more favourable to beneficiaries concern MSCA IF. Clarifications and corrections of clerical errors will also be applied retroactively.
