All actions: I cannot upload my deliverable on SyGMa due to a technical problem with the platform. What now?
In case you cannot upload a deliverable in due course because of a technical problem on the side of the SyGMa platform, it is best to send the deliverable by email to the project officer to prove it was ready at the correct point of time. Additionally, enquire with the SyGMa helpdesk for technical support. You will find a list of the EU helpdesks here.

Tuition fees for ESRs are not paid by the ESRs, as indicated in Art. 32 (j) of the Model Grant Agreement which ensures that 'the researchers do not have to bear any costs for the implementation of the action as desribed in Annex 1.'
This clause applies to all FP7 and all H2020 projects. For Horizon Europe project this is expected to remain the same and will be specified in the Horizon Europe Model Grant Agreement.

For an individual fellowship, the coordinator and the fellow file the redress case. This is done via the link indicated the in the letter to the applicant by REA with the information about the outcome (evaluation results letter). This must be done within 30 days after receiving this letter. The overall process must be done within 4 months after this deadline, including the answer by the redress committee.
Please take note that a redress case does not automatically lead to a re-evaluation, and even in the case of a re-evaluation, it doesn't automatically mean a higher score. If there should be a higher score, this still does not mean an automatic funding!

ITN: If an ITN supervisor is moving from an institution in country A to another institution in country B, taking the ITN "with him" (so change of beneficiary), what happens with the country correction coefficient for the ESRs that go with him?
A scientist in charge is moving from one institution to another and there may be a request of termination of one beneficiary and transfer of person-months to another beneficiary of the consortium or a new beneficiary. After the request is discussed and approved by REA, the Person Months (PMs) can be transferred and the country correction coefficient will be the one of the beneficiary where the PMs will be transferred. The total EU contribution cannot be increased in case the coefficient is higher, there may be the need to transfer less PMs in this case.
