Ensure that the EU contribution is fully used for the benefit of the seconded staff members.
EU contribution It can be: • paid directly to the seconded staff member or • managed centrally by the beneficiary according to the specific needs of the secondment. Detailed arrangements for the use of the contribution may also be agreed internally between beneficiaries and partner organisations, to address the specific financial needs of each secondment.
EU contribution The Research, training and networking costs cover the costs of research and innovation related activities of the project such as purchasing of consumables, laboratory costs, participation to conferences, workshops, coordination and review meetings, and networking activities.
EU contribution Management and indirect costs cover all general costs connected with the organisation and implementation of the secondments (administrative and financial management, logistics, ethics, human resources, legal advice, documentation, etc. ).
EU contribution The beneficiaries, as grant recipients, are responsible for the management of the project. Each beneficiary will report to the REA the person-months of its own staff seconded to another organisation, plus the secondments from TC partners to its organisation. The payment of each categories is linked to the implementattion of the secondment. If the secondment is not implemented none of the 3 categories is paid.
Split Secondments The minimum length of 1 month is reached if either: a. The secondment starts on day n of a month (month N) and ends on day n-1 of the next month (month N+1) – If there is only 1 period of secondment (or several consecutive ones) or b. The duration of the several secondments periods adds up to 30 days – If there at least 2 non-consecutives periods of secondment
