EU Contract Support
Regularly, EU research projects involve the conclusion of contracts according to § 27 Para. 1 Sec. 3 UG 2002 (Universities Act 2002) . The participating TU institute must forward these contracts to the EU Reseach Support (EURS, E0155) for review in time, that is to say 2 weeks at the latest before the contract is intended to be signed.
The same procedure in particular applies to EU Grant Agreements (GA) of FP7 projects and „pre-contract documents“ (Grant Agreement Preparation Forms, GPF). Please show us all other drafts of contracts in their first version and all following versions as soon as you have received them from the project coordinator, if the time of contract conclusion is not fixed.
If the TU Wien is coordinator of an EU research project, the EU Research Support supports the project leader in drafting the preliminary contract and the Consortium Agreement. We support the institutes of the TU Wien in negotiating the contract and review the contracts forwarded to us according to the obligation to submit. Afterwards we give our legal, financial and administrative opinion and make our suggestions for improvement.
If the project turnover of the TU Wien exceeds € 350.000 or if the project lasts more than 3 years, the EURS asks the Vice Rector for Research for approval before contract conclusion.
