Q: What does a secondment period mean for multi-site ITNs and how can these costs be accounted in an ITN proposal? (All Calls)
A: A researcher appointed under the project by one network partner can spend a period of secondment at another network partner's premises. A secondment period must not represent more than 30% of the total period of the agreement in force between the researcher and the original appointing institution. during the secondment period the original appointing institution will continue to pay the salary of the researcher. If the secondment period exceeds this maximum, the receiving network partner must appoint the researcher. In a multi-site ITN secondments cannot take place to an organisation outside the network.
