The CREATOR mini-program has been made possible by the INTERREG IVC and Co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention. EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.

Budget changes

There is a possibility to change the project implementation if a sub-project has legitimate reasons to do to. The areas which are subject to change are:

- Partnership
- Budget
- Work plan

There are minor and major changes. If minor changes (e.g. change in contact details, rescheduling of activities, and budget deviation within the 10% flexibility rule) are required, the Lead Participant can include them in the progress report for that 6-month period.
For major changes, a request for change has to be sent in to the Lead Partner explaining the justification for the change. In addition an application form for changes has to be filled in and submitted. 20% is the maximum budget change allowed. A major change is only allowed once.

To do this, one has to, of course follow the set out rules explained below and then:
1. The lead participants sends the Lead Partner in Västerbotten (via e-mail or postal mail) a new budget file (or   several, depending on how many lines and components the change affects).

2. The Lead Partner of CREATOR then makes a decision whether or not the change is feasible. The Lead Partner may ask for some clarifications if needed.

3. A formal decision is sent to the lead participant.
