But in the three model H2020 consortium agreements currently available, deliverables and reports are treated as one. Two talk of “submitting reports, other deliverables (including financial statements and related certifications)”, adding the further confusion that financial statements are deliverables, not components of the periodic and final reports as described in the grant agreement. The third consortium agreement defines deliverables as “all reports, certificates, data and other information required to be provided to the funding authority”.
Of course, consortium agreements can define words to have any meaning they choose, if the way the words are then used doesn’t contradict the grant agreement. But it would be easier to understand the consortium agreements if they didn’t redefine words already in widespread use in EC projects, even if the agreements use upper case text to identify when a defined term is being used!
