Horizon Europe MSCA – Grants & reporting

Your grant agreement

The grant agreement defines the work that you commit to carry out during your EU-funded project. It is based on your successful proposal.  

The grant agreement lists the project partners (beneficiaries, associated partners, etc.) and specifies your project activities, the duration, budget, EU contribution, and rights and obligations. You can find a detailed explanation in the Horizon Europe annotated model grant agreement.

For each project, there is a project officer at the REA who accompanies the beneficiary / consortium throughout the project’s implementation. If you are a project coordinator, the project officer is your main contact for any matters regarding your grant agreement and reporting on your project implementation. For multi-beneficiary grants, the project coordinator acts on behalf of the consortium and steers the project activities. You can contact your project officer through your profile in the Funding & tenders Portal.  

Coordinators’ Days

At the start of your project, a Coordinators’ Day may be organised for your action. The REA organises these events for most of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, with the aim to help new project coordinators/beneficiaries manage their grants and to understand their rights and obligations. The Coordinators’ Days are also an opportunity for you to build first contacts with other project teams working on similar topics. For Postdoctoral Fellowships, info days for researchers may also be organised.


On behalf of the project consortium, the project coordinator submits all reports, payment requests, deliverables and other documents through the grant management service. You can access the service through your profile in the Funding & tenders Portal.  

You will find general information on grant management and reporting in the Funding & tenders online manual. For any specific questions, please contact your project officer.

Amendments to the grant agreement

In some cases, it might be necessary to amend your grant agreement, for example, if changes are needed for a successful project implementation. In these cases, the project coordinator submits a request through the Funding & tenders Portal’s grant management service. Both the beneficiaries and the REA sign the amendment electronically. 

In the Funding & Tenders Opportunities online manual, you will find an overview of when and how you can request an amendment.  Before launching your amendment request, discuss it with your project officer.
