It is for the participating organisations and individuals to decide on the course of action to take in the light of national travel advice and repatriation schemes. We advise you to follow the travel advice provided by your national authorities and, if needed, to cancel or postpone all non-essential travels.
There may be circumstances in which the current situation prevents the fulfilment of an obligation laid down in the grant agreement. If such cases are reported, the Research Executive Agency will adopt a flexible approach and may apply the rules on force majeure foreseen in the grant agreement, if duly justified. Projects could also be exceptionally extended, if necessary.
Please note that we will assess the circumstances on a case-by-case basis. Please liaise with your Project Officer in case you need support.
