Co-applicant(s)
Co-applicants participate in designing and implementing the action, and the costs they incur are eligible in the same way as those incurred by the lead applicant. Co-applicants must satisfy the eligibility criteria as applicable to lead applicants.
For Lot 1: In addition to the categories referred to in Section 2.1.1, co-applicants meeting the following criteria are also eligible: be established in a Member State of the European Union or any other eligible country or territory as indicated in Regulation (EU) No 236/2014 laying down common rules and procedures for the implementation of the Union’s instruments for financing external action.
Affiliated entities
Lead applicant and their co-applicant(s) may act with affiliated entity(ies). Only the following entities may be considered as entities affiliated to the lead applicant and/or to co – applicant(s): Only entities having a structural link with the applicants (i.e. the lead applicant or a co-applicant), in particular a legal or capital link. This structural link encompasses mainly two notions:

Entities affiliated to an applicant may hence be:
Entities directly or indirectly controlled by the applicant (daughter companies or first-tier subsidiaries). They may also be entities controlled by an entity controlled by the applicant (granddaughter companies or second-tier subsidiaries) and the same applies to further tiers of control;
Entities directly or indirectly controlling the applicant (parent companies). Likewise, they may be entities controlling an entity controlling the applicant;
Entities under the same direct or indirect control as the applicant (sister companies).
Membership, i.e. the applicant is legally defined as, for instance, a network, federation, association, in which the proposed affiliated entities also participate or the applicant participates in the same entity (e.g., network, federation, association etc.) as the proposed affiliated entities.
