Tips for requesting a modification
• Please inform the Agency as soon as you know and in any
case before the implementation of the change
• Costs for activities related to amendments are only
eligible if directly connected with the project and
indicated in the estimated overall budget
• Submit modification requests and progress reports
separately
• Submit a complete and correct modification request
(wrong or incomplete requests will delay the
amendment procedure)
• The modification enters into force only when the Agency
gives its approval
