Q: For ERC Grant schemes: I'm confused by the language of this statement from "ERC Grant Schemes Guide for Applicants for the Advanced Grant Call" about the funding "An ERC grant can cover up to 100% of the total eligible direct costs of the research plus a contribution up to 20% of the total eligible costs (excluding the direct eligible costs for subcontracting and the costs of resources made available by third parties which are not used on the premises of the host institution) towards indirect costs."Does it mean that a grant may cover all direct costs of the project (including, e.g. management and dissemination) plus indirect costs calculated as 20% (maximum) of direct costs? Or alternatively, does it mean that the grant cover only RESEARCH direct costs plus ONLY up to 20 % of other direct costs (e.g. dissemination and management) plus indirect costs calculated as 20% (maximum) of indirect costs? For example, will be the cost of a workshop aiming disseminate the results of the project, be covered in full or only up to 20%? Will it be covered in full the publication of monographies, which summarize the results of projects in full or only up to 20%? Please clarify (better with the reference on document of FP7).
A: This question is no longer relevant so it has been removed from the FAQ database.
You probably found it through a search engine which "remembers" questions even after we delete them.
