Universitat de Barcelona (UB) The UB is the largest of all the universities in Catalunya. The UB is ranked the first Spanish university in scientific quality and productivity. The UB develops all the activities related to the research in Europe through the International Research Projects Unit (OPIR). The Promotion Section of the OPIR is in charge of the pre-award assistance for EC programmes (and others). Management model and procedure: UB

Fundació Bosch i Gimpera de la Universitat de Barcelona (FBG) In FP7 projects, FBG is considered as a third party of the UB, but not covered by Special Clause 10, since it doesnt perform any scientific or technical work in the projects. The FBG is a foundation integrated and controlled by the UB, and its not a subcontractor, since it belongs to the UB Group. The Financial Management Section of the OPIR is in charge of the post-award assistance for EC programmes (and others). Management model and procedure: FBG
Agility: the payment and transfer deadlines (to partners, etc.) are faster if theyre done by a Foundation than by a public administration. Why a UB Foundation is in charge of the european projects management? Staff specialization: people in charge of work can be selected under different rules that the ones imposed to a public administration. Their salaries can also be adapted to its knowledge and the development of its tasks. Less bureaucracy: a Foundation can develop its own procedures following functional criteria. Management model and procedure: FBG
