One of the activities of the External Funding Group of CERN (FAP-EF) is to respond to the increasing demand for the handling of Externally-Funded Projects at CERN. The aim is to effectively and efficiently understand business opportunities between a solicited organisation, a collaboration, a company, a trust, a foundation and/or a private donor and CERN.
This activity is the third pillar within the External Funding Group and is focused on the following domains:
The primary role of the Group is to act as an advisory body for the CERN Departments to ensure the adequate financial implementation of Externally-Funded Projects resulting from Knowledge Transfer, Medical Applications, Partnerships and Fundraising.
Some prerequisites related to Externally-Funded Projects are:
- All External Funds are subject to a prior contractual agreement, approved and signed by the CERN Management and endorsed by CERN’s Financial services,
- All External Funds are to be used exclusively for professional activities in the framework of the agreed project and on the CERN premises,
- All External Funds are subject to a CERN invoice. Ample information on the invoicing rules and regulations [including the CERN Financial Rules] are available on the CERN Admin e-guide .
