An EIBURS research grant provides up to EUR 100 000 a year, for a period of three years, but the continuation of the grant after each one-year period is conditional on the receipt and approval by the EIB of a progress report and a detailed work plan with its budget for the next year(s). EIBURS is a flexible instrument and as such it may allow changes in the activities proposed during the second and third-year periods. However, the research centre must present such changes, at the beginning of these two periods, for approval by the EIB contact person and the EIB Institute. The research centre is expected to provide sufficient information regarding its research activities and administrative matters. Besides the annual reports the research centre must send to the EIB Institute copies of all documents produced by the research team. The research centre (up to two researchers involved in the project) is expected to present a progress report of its research activities in the annual meetings organised at the EIB in Luxembourg. The research centre should include on its website a page on the EIBURS-supported activities. The results of the EIBURS research should be in the public domain and adequately disseminated to produce maximum benefit to the scientific and professional communities. The beneficiary must mention the EIB Institute’s support through EIBURS for any publication, activity, etc. supported by the sponsorship. The sponsorship will conclude after the acceptance of the final report produced by the research centre at the end of the three-year sponsorship period. The EIB and the research centre will aim to resolve amicably any potential conflicts arising between them, possibly through the appointment by common agreement of a third party that would issue a final verdict.
