Duration of project

Question details: 
Based on the points made about time planning would you expect the duration of a project including clinical trials to be longer than those under FP7, for example, 6 years instead of 5? Do you think this will be accepted by the Commission?
Answer: 

With regards to “realistic” 6 years might be better than 5 years – so you need to argue accordingly. With regards to credibility and manageability – I would not recommend to prolongate the projects too much. The longer a project is, the more may happen meanwhile which affects results etc. You might rather consider to leave out 1 or 2 Work steps and make the project more tiny and focused.
