Request for Proposals: Partners onboarding service

EIT Urban Mobility and the other eight Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) are delivering their innovative solutions together with different actors (e.g. SMEs, universities, research institutions, public entities, local/regional/national authorities, etc.), who receive financial support through subgrants to implement the awarded activities. All KICs will need to ensure that the entities receiving their subgrants are eligible and comply with the minimum requirements set also for beneficiaries of Horizon Europe grants.

According to the new grant management framework, KICs will be responsible for the eligibility check of all entities receiving an EIT subgrant. This major change encouraged all KICs to cooperate in a EIT Community initiative supervised by the EIT and with the EIT Urban Mobility KIC as coordinator, in order to provide a unique “partner onboarding service” in charge of the eligibility check of all entities receiving a EIT subgrant.

The eligibility check of the entities receiving financial support from all nine KICs will ensure that entities can carry out the tasks part of the subgrant agreement, according to the provisions requested by EIT.

According to this, the “Partner onboarding service” should be provided by a single provider or by a consortium able to perform a full eligibility check to all entities receiving an EIT subgrant and ensure the maintenance of an existing IT database, for the storage of the entities’ supporting document and for the access and exchange of the information among KICs and Partner onboarding service.

All information, including the detailed scope of work, deliverables, and terms & conditions can be found in the Request for Proposals.

Deadline for submissions: EXTENDED! New deadline: 29 March 2023 at 16:00 Central European Time.
