Guidance for EDCTP grant holders

Here you can find the necessary information to guide you in managing an existing EDCTP grant.


EDCTP guides

Reference documents

Financial guidelines and templates

These guidelines are relevant to most budget questions.

The main objectives of this document are:

  • To provide a quick reference and easy-to-follow guide for beneficiaries of EDCTP funding
  • To ensure consistency in the financial management of EDCTP grants
  • To act as a reference document for external auditors and other stakeholders in carrying out financial audits or other reviews of EDCTP-funded projects.

Please note: These guidelines have been prepared to supplement the Grant Agreement by providing an explanation of the accounting policies, financial reporting, and budgeting requirements. However, in the event conflict arises between these guidelines and the Grant Agreement, the latter takes precedence.
