EC starts survey on Horizon 2020 simplification
The European Commission opened an online survey on simplification in Horizon 2020 on 28 September 2015. The aim of the initiative is to find out what stakeholders think about the impact of the existing simplification measures, and to gather ideas for further simplification.
As part of this consultation, a meeting of relevant stakeholder organisations was organised in Brussels. Participants pointed out that the Participant Portal, the shortened time-to-grant, and the simplified funding mechanisms would be the benefits of the simplification endeavors. They also mentioned that improvements should be made e.g. in the area of accounting practices and oversubscription.TOP
