The European Commission adopted on 24 January 2011 a Decision on measures for simplifying the implementation of the Seventh RTD and EURATOM Framework Programmes (FP7). The Commission Decision modified Article II.14.1 of Annex II (General Conditions) of the model Grant Agreements and you are therefore requested to replace Annex II of the above-mentioned Grant Agreement by the revised Annex II, which you can find by following this link: New annex II
