Designate your Legal Entity Appointed Representative (LEAR)

01 June 2015 - Published by Rikke Sørensen
If you are submitting a full application for the first call, don't forget to designate a LEAR.

Only a Legal Entity Appointed Representative (LEAR) can submit a full application in the online monitoring system. So if you plan to submit a full application by 30 June it is crucial that you designate a LEAR to your project.

The process of designating a LEAR is fairly simple, but does take some time. So if you haven't started the process yet, we recommend you do as soon as possible.

Please note that if you are a LEAR under Horizon 2020, you still have to go through the process - you will not be able to use the same user name and password with the North Sea Region Programme.
