Finanzmanagement bei Marie Curie
Financial management in Marie Curie projects
In terms of project accounting Marie Curie Actions differ considerably from the collaborative research projects of the Framework Programme. Instead of funding quotas Marie Curie projects are increasingly funded by, fixed amounts and flat rates that are organized in several cost categories.
Each cost category is either related to the fellows (salary and specific research activities) or refers to costs of the host institution that occur additionally during the project implementation.
The amount of each flat rate as well as the structure of the cost categories are subject to annual changes that are set in the respective work programme for that year. Over the entire duration of a project, the funded project is bound to the financial regulations of the respective call year’s work programme.
Cost categories in the work programmes 2007 – 2010
There are flat rates in up to 9 cost categories under the work programmes 2007 – 2010. Only the management costs of certain Marie Curie Actions are an exception. more »
Cost categories in the work programme 2011
The cost categories were restructured in order to simplify the project accounting.
Financial management in successful projects
The European Commission will not pay its financial contribution to the researcher directly. Instead funds are paid to the host institution, which is in charge of managing them. Accordingly the Commission will conclude a Grant Agreement with the host institution for Individual Fellowships or with the project coordinator for ITN or IAAP projects. more »
