Cost for infrastructure and works

Costs for infrastructure and works are eligible and reported as real costs.

Costs for infrastructure and works are not to be reported at all if the project uses the simplified cost option of a flat rate of 40% to cover all other costs but staff costs.

Costs for infrastructure and works shall be limited to the following:
(a) purchase of land in accordance with point (b) of Article 64(1) of Regulation (EU) 2021/1060;
(b) building permits;
(c) building material;
(d) labour; and
(e) specialised interventions (such as soil remediation, mine-clearing).
