Your Grant

The eligibility for funding and the value of your grant depends on the location of your home and host institution.

Each researcher receives:

Number of seconded months * EUR 1800

Number of seconded months * EUR 2000

Calculation of the duration of each secondment is based on the number of days (including travel days) and is calculated according to the calendar (e.g. 31 days for January and 28 days for February).

Duration of each secondment has to be at least 1 month.

Example:

You will be seconded from The University of Oxford to Harvard University. The date of departure from United Kingdom is 03/12/2014 (dd/mm/year) and the date of arrival to United Kingdom is 05/03/2015.

Calculation:

(29/31          +         31/31        +        28/28        +           5/31)     *  EUR 2000  =   EUR 6129

(12/2014)            (01/2015)           (02/2015)            (03/2015)

Your grant is EUR 6129 and you will receive the payment from The University of Oxford.

 

Grant money will be delivered during the secondment and is ment to cover both travel and subsistence costs.

Payments of the individual grants are done by the beneficiaries (Charles University, FEEM, Oxford, TSE), a provision obligatory under EU regulation. This means that these instituions pay both their incoming and their outgoing researchers.

Home institutions will insure the necessary resources for the displacement of their detached researchers to the corresponding partner institutions. They will commit to keep the regular payment of the home salary, stipend, or grant to the researchers during their detachment abroad.

To comply with EU regulation, each researcher needs to be able to prove the mobility, i.e. needs to hand in:

When the dates on e-ticket and Declaration of Mobility Form are different (e.g. when the researcher connects the secondment with his/her vacation), relevant dates for the computation of duration are the dates stated in the Declaration of Mobility Form.

Number of secondments per researcher is not limited, however each researcher may be supported with maximum 12 months altogether.

 

New Zealand researchers are supported through matching grants of the Royal Society of New Zealand. African researchers are supported by South African ESASTAP funding (EUR 3000 per researcher/month). American and Australian partners provide financing through sabbatical and research grants. Additional visits between the EU partners or between the overseas partners that will take place during the project lifetime will be funded by the partners.
