WHO CAN APPLY – ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
Should all applicants on the team have at least a master's degree?

Yes, each applicant must hold at least a master’s degree.

It is not necessary that all the people that are part of the research team come from the same institution. In fact, collaborative applications from teams and/or institutions is strongly encouraged as far as the other eligibly criteria are matched.

EXPENSES COVERED
Is the indicated budget for TA per person or per team?

The limits of the expenses covered are per person.

How will the reimbursement of expenses be paid?

Each infrastructure will handle the reimbursements differently. If your application will be approved, you will be put in contact with the RIL to discuss all the details.

How do I know if a budget limit exception will be made for my project?

The RILs cannot assure the applicant to be able to cover higher costs, since it will much depend on the number of approved projects (and their position in the final ranking list) and the total available resources of the LL. If your application will be approved, you will be put in contact with the RIL to discuss all the details, including any exceptions to budget limits.
