H2020: What is the country status of Georgia and Armenia?



In the case of Georgia, “It will be provisionally applicable as of 1 January 2016 upon its signature.” Therefore Georgia is to be treated as an Associated Country for RISE-2016.
In the case of Armenia and the treaty is signed prior to the signature of the grant agreement, we will update the status at GAP stage (planned September 2016) only (no provisional or retroactive application is foreseen) therefore and until further notice Armenia is to be treated as a Third Country.
