ITN - EID 2016: The rule of 40% financial contribution to one country, does it apply for consortia with more than 2 partners?



The GfA 2016 states something different than the Annotated Model Grant Agreement regarding the 40%-budget rule. REA officially informed NCPs that, from 2016 on, only EID consisting of just 2 beneficiaries are exempt from the 40% rule. The Model Grant Agreements will be updated with their next release.

The MSCA 2016/17 Workprogram from p. 55 on also confirm this:
"not more than 40% of the requested EU contribution may be allocated to beneficiaries in the same country or to any one international European interest organisation or international organisation (except for EID with only two beneficiaries)."
