All Actions (i.e. projects) contracted under 5G-PPP Phase 1, agreed at their launch to implement a 5G-PPP program level collaboration agreement. The provisions of the agreement meet the requirements of: Article 41.4 Relationship with complementary beneficiaries – Collaboration agreement
All Actions contracted under the 5G-PPP Phase 2 will be considered “5G-PPP complementary grant agreements” in the context of Article 41.4 of the Annotated Model Grant Agreement for H20202 and therefore, must provision for the appropriate joint actions, 5G Global Events, Work Groups, KPIs progress evaluation and the grant of additional access rights by joining such a collaboration agreement.
The only way to ensure that Phase 2 Actions are granted the additional access rights to the work of Phase 1, and vice versa, is through the new Phase 2 beneficiaries acceding to the existing agreement. Beneficiaries who are already parties to this agreement do not need to sign it again. As there will probably be a high degree of overlap between the lists of phase 1 and phase 2 beneficiaries, this should be efficient.
The new beneficiaries will be invited to join this agreement once the successful Actions of the phase 2 call are known.
The full text of the agreement is available here: 5G-PPP Collaboration Agreement
The Word version of the accession form to be completed by the new beneficiaries will be distributed by email after the phase 2 project selection process.
