Q: Would a US partner be acceptable as a full partner in the ITN multi-site proposals if they are not recruiting researchers, but e.g. receiving researchers on secondment, contributing significantly to the training project and to the research deliverables? (All Calls)
A: No, a full partnership (beneficiary) implies recruitment since the budget allocation is proportional to the researcher months. Special financial conditions apply to Other Third Country (OTC) participants as full partners (possible only in multi-site ITNs) as indicated in the Guide for Applicants. An associated OTC partner (in this example a US partner) that is not recruiting can receive a researcher for a visit/secondment. The role has to be described and justified in the proposal.
