Finanzmanagement bei Marie Curie
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.
Researchers will either be employed on the basis of an employment contract with the host institution or on the basis of a fixed-amount fellowship (stipend), whereas the latter is only applicable under certain exceptions. A draft of a model employment contract for Germany under the frameworks of Initial Training Networks (ITN) and Intra-European Fellowships (IEF) including an English reading version can be found in the download area.
External Audit certificates (Certification on the Financial Statement, CFS) are only required for Marie Curie Actions, if parts of the funding are not awarded as flat rates. Since Individual Fellowships are paid on the basis of flat rates, CFSs are only applicable for IAAPs and ITNs, if the financial contribution exceeds 375.000 EUR.
The taxation of each flat rate for the fellow depends on the regulations of the respective local tax office. More information on the taxation of Marie Curie Fellowships can be found on the website of the German Researchers’ Mobility Portal.
