Horizon Europe - internal rules for participation 

Lund University has internal rules for participation in Horizon 2020. These concern matters such as who approves your participation and what documentation is required for the decision, who signs the contract and who is responsible for the work in the project. At Lund University, these aspects are managed by Research Services.

Applications to the European Research Council

Special rules apply for applications to the European Research Council (ERC) as these require a commitment of the host institution signed by the vice-chancellor. Please contact Research Services for additional information.

Participant Identification Code (PIC)

When you register your application in the Funding & tender opportunities portal, you need to provide a specific identification code, PIC, for Lund University. The basic information about the University is then entered automatically. 

Legal name: Lunds universitet
Short name: ULUND
PIC: 999901318

Financial support for applications and project coordination

You can receive a planning grant from the university if you coordinate an application regarding collaborative projects within Horizon Europe with a minimum of three participating organisations. You are also qualified to apply for a  coordination grant if you coordinate a collaborative project within Horizon Europe. To receive the planning grant, please contact Research Services and inform us which ‘Topic ID’ you will be applying to ahead of the application deadline. 

You are welcome to contact Research Services early in the application process to partake of all available support.


Framework programme projects feature several types of contracts between the parties involved in the project. The contracts are reviewed by the legal division before being signed by the head of the faculty office/head of the administration.
