The Terms and Conditions of Eurojust’s financial assistance to the activities of Joint Investigation Teams (JITs) have been updated. The T&Cs will come into force from Call 6, which will be launched on 24 August 2020.
Some of the introduced changes and updates allow for more flexibility at the application or reimbursement stage, such as the possibility to accept costs for translation and interpretation from/ to any of the working languages of the institutions of the EU for reimbursement (Articles 50 and 51).
More flexibility is also introduced regarding the extension of the action period: a new condition enables JITs to request an extension at least one working day before the end of the action period (Articles 54 and 55).
Other changes concern the recommendation for JITs to mention the received funding and include the Eurojust logo in any communication or publication related to the funded actions (Article 12), and a new section reflecting the relevant provisions of the Eurojust Regulation related to audits (Articles 73 and 74).
