Research Performing Institutions (RPI): any non-profit institution dedicated to research that carries out activities of the Project. In individual projects, the RPI is the Host institution. In Research consortiums, there must be a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 RPI (including the Host Institution).
Principal investigators (PIs). Each research performing institution must have a principal investigator responsible for performing the activities in the project carried out at their institution.
Cooperating Organizations. Both individual projects and research consortium may also include non-research performing civil society organizations (e. g. civil society bodies, patients' associations) and/or companies that carry out activities of the Project
Companies. Incorporated companies, whether or not they are members of the consortium, may only receive project funds if they are subcontracted by a non-profit institution which is a member of the consortium.
Any institution of the project must carry out activities and, therefore, have an assigned budget. Institutions not located in Spain or Portugal may receive a maximum of 30% of the total project budget.
