The AMGA of Horizon Europe, AMGA standing for Annotated Model Grant Agreement, is a guide aimed at assisting EU grant beneficiaries. It is provided for information purposes only and is not intended to replace the binding legal agreements themselves, nor professional legal advice for specific cases.
You can access the AMGA of Horizon Europe through the European Commission website.
The current version published on the 23rd of July 2021 is a pre-draft, meaning that it is not the final version, but it is already very useful to better understand the various articles of the Model Grant Agreement. The future versions of the AMGA will be available through the same link once they are published.
Programme specificities are reflected in this document as examples — in so far as they are accepted as mainstream solutions that can be used by several EU programmes.
The purpose of this document is to help users understand and interpret their Grant Agreements (GAs). By avoiding technical vocabulary, legal references and jargon, it seeks to help readers find answers to the practical questions they may come across when setting-up or implementing their projects.
In the same spirit, the document’s structure mirrors that of the EU Model Grant Agreements (MGAs). It explains each MGA Article and includes examples where appropriate.
Since all EU MGAs are derived from the General MGA, the AGA focuses mainly on the General MGA; annotations of the other MGAs are limited to major differences from that MGA.
