Framework Partnership Agreement - Signature
European Commission and HBP signed H2020 Framework Partnership Agreement.
The project has been refined, based on the first EC technical review (see PDF Document) and the recommendations from the HBP Mediation Group , which was put in place to manage the public scientific debate started in June 2014.
The FPA describes the work plan for the HBP's Operational Phase, which covers the next 7.5 years. With the signature of the FPA, the HBP budget in Horizon 2020 will be unlocked. EU funds will be released based on successful annual project reviews conducted by independent experts to closely monitor progress made by the HBP, as well as successful evaluation of the proposals the HBP will submit to the Commission every two years. These proposals (Specific Grant Agreements) describe the detailed activities of each two-year phase of the project.
