IF 2016: How long can a 'short stay' be (important for assessing the eligibility/mobility rule)?



For the RI panel the Guide for Applicants published on the Participant Portal indicates that the researcher must move or have moved (transnational mobility) from a TC directly (excluding compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays) to the MS or AC where the beneficiary is located.



The evaluation of short stays is a case by case approach and the egibility of the researcher can only be examined from the information included in the submitted proposal.



In case of doubts about the eligibility of the researchers, submission of documentary evidence may be requested, after the call deadline.
