Effective simplification for FP9: EUA kicks off informal dialogue with major stakeholders

The EUA member consultation on the Horizon 2020 mid-term review concluded that “despite the progress in simplification in some areas, Horizon 2020 is still associated with a high administrative burden at all stages of application, participation and project administration.
