How new H2020 funding rules affect MC projects in Germany


Hello everyone,


A while back I learned that the EC modified its salary payment rules to make H2020 projects competitive with national projects:

As a MC researcher in Germany I earn less than my coworkers (which are paid according to TUV13), so I was very happy to read about that. I sent an e-mail to my project officer and she responded that the MC GA differs from the general GA in eligibility of costs, the wording in the change in funding rules makes it sound that it affects all H2020 projects, even retroactively. Does anyone have any experience with this or done some research themselves?


Hope to learn more,
