Financial and contractual aspects
Can the grant cover the Principal Investigator’s salary?
Yes. All costs which are directly related to the execution of the project can be claimed, i.e. the personal costs/salary of the Principal Investigator can also be claimed, but only to the extent of the actual working hours she/he was committed to the execution of the project. Those costs will be reimbursed to 100%. The level of the Principal Investigator's salary together with the overall personal cost calculation of the project must however be in line with the host institution's own accounting principles.
