Horizon Europe projects: updated DESCA model Consortium Agreement now available

The most widespread model Consortium Agreement in Horizon 2020 projects, DESCA, has been updated for use in Horizon Europe projects and is now available for download. The revised model takes into account requirements stemming from the rules of the new EU Framework Programme Horizon Europe and experience of the user community in working with DESCA 2020, as well as other legal developments.

DESCA (Development of a Simplified Consortium Agreement) is a comprehensive Model Consortium Agreement for such projects. It was initiated by key stakeholders for the 7th EU Framework Programme in 2006 and has been updated for both Horizon 2020 and for Horizon Europe in consultation with the stakeholder community.
