Can I suspend my ESF project?

ESF-project opschorten

The current pandemic means that we suddenly have new priorities, as in the first place: the health of every person.

The measures we need to take for this have a direct and indirect impact on our daily operations and projects. A prolongation or suspension may therefore be necessary.

  • ESF promoters who wish to extend their project may be granted an extension for the same period as those covered by the special measures for the Corona crisis. However, the initially allocated budget will be maintained.
  • Promoters who had foreseen a (final) event or process evaluation are also granted an extension.

You can submit your application for extension to your ESF project manager after the discontinuation of the COVID-19 measures. At that moment, ESF will be able to assess your project extension together with you.

As regards evidence of the situation in which you can continue working in projects through teleworking and alternative communication tools, the ordinary means of evidence will continue to apply.
