COFUND 2017: Can researchers who are already permanently employed at any of the participating organisations benefit from a COFUND programme?

While in the Guide for Applicants 2016 it was stated that "researchers with a permanent position could benefit from a COFUND programme if moving to another organisation and complying with the mobility rule during, for example, a sabbatical leave" this is not the case anymore in the Guide for applicants 2017, where it says "support can not be awarded to researchers who are already permanently employed at any of the participating organisations."
