You will always find the terms and conditions in the decision on funding, and here on the web. English versions of the documents are available on the English version of this page.
In your decision, there are sometimes also special conditions that add, remove or change something in our general terms and conditions. Therefore, it is important to read the term in the decision.

We review project regularly
Every year, we perform at least 50 in-depth reviews of our funded project. The right to review a project follows from our general terms and conditions (see § 8.1, General terms and conditions). It is valid during the project period and for ten years after the last payment.
We can choose to review both ongoing and completed project. The project that are selected for review are done both randomly and based on what we believe may involve a high risk.
The audit is performed by external auditors.
If we suspect a crime in project, we report it to the police.
You must always follow the term that applied when you received the decision on funding. These terms apply to most of the project which we granted funding before January 1, 2021.
