    What is the role of the Coordinator regarding certification?

    CliffVC edited question

      A strong coordinator is a very important element in a successful Action. The coordinator is expected to have the overview of the Action’s implementation and is thus requested to gather all required information and documentation for the due submission of deliverables and requests for payment in accordance with the Grant Agreement.

      Certification of costs incurred should be provided by the Member State in which the beneficiary is established. However in exceptional cases and where requested by the beneficiary, this certification may be provided by the Member State in which the action is implemented. Therefore, the Member State where the coordinator is established does not necessarily need to certify the cost incurred by beneficiaries established in other Member States or third countries and the Member State does not need to certify the entirety of the costs of the Action incurred in different Member States and third countries.
