The effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak may cause delays for the implementation of ongoing Business Partnership Support projects. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs has decided to continue the duration of flexibility measures supporting the completion of projects whose period of use of funding will expire between 1 January and 1 July 2021. Earlier flexibility measures have been possible for Business Partnership Support projects that have been awarded discretionary government grants between 1 April and 31 December 2018 – read more here. A more detailed description of the flexibility measures and projects that they may concern is given below.
Flexibility measures can be requested for Business Partnership Support projects whose government grant decision was dated between 1 January and 1 July 2019 and whose period of use of funding will expire between 1 January and 1 July 2021. Flexibility measures are not granted automatically to all projects, but the recipients must submit a request for a review to apply for flexibility before the expiry of the period of use of the funding. To request for a review of a discretionary government grant, the recipient must request a change of use in the Online service by collecting the project application from the Commenced cases page and clicking ‘Modification / Addition’.
If the request for a review has not been submitted before the normal period of use of funding, the support will expire.
For projects whose government grant decision has been made after 1 July 2019, the terms and conditions that were in force at the time of submission of the application will continue to be valid for the time being.
In case the recipient has submitted a request for a review before the expiry of the period of use of the funding, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs will implement the following flexibility measures:
In other respects, the projects are subject to the terms and conditions that were in force when the application was submitted.
