Only for BBI: please indicate if a beneficiary is a Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC) member: full or associated member .

  • The field "No Contribution Requested?" is now called "Participates as 'not receiving EU funding' and it is a check box.
  • It has been clarified who is entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding':
    • Only beneficiaries or affiliated entities ( third parties) established in an OCEF country (OCEF = Other Countries which get Exceptional Funding) are entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding'; the system will automatically preselect the check box for those participants.  Exceptionally, those participants might be entitled to receive EU funding; in this case, the project officer of the project should agree and only him is allowed to deselect the check box.
    • Beneficiaries/ affiliated entities (linked third parties) not receiving EU funding participate in the action but will NOT receive any EU funding. For such beneficiaries the tasks should be described in Annex 1 and the estimated costs should be mentioned in the separate column in Annex 2. These costs will however not be reimbursed or taken into account for the calculation of the grant.
      Attention!!  Unlike before 22/09/2016, participants NOT established in an OCEF country (e.g. Member State or Associated country) are NOT entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding'. There is NO exceptional handling of this rule. However, they can request ZERO max. grant amount; the system does not block it anymore.

Now, also "International Organisations (IOs) of non-EU interest" are entitled to participate as 'not receiving EU funding'.
