Regular projects

Regular project

Regular projects are projects with a total budget higher than the limits for small-scale projects (more than 40 000 or 60 000 depending on number of participating countries). There are two methods to plan the budget and report the costs. The same method must be used for every partner in the project.

Method A, the 40%-method, is the simplest method where one only has to report on staff costs. All other costs will be covered by a flat rate of 40% based on approved staff costs.

  • Regular projects with a total budget up to EUR 200 000 must use method A, “the 40%-method”.
  • Regular project with a total budget above EUR 200 000 can choose method A “the 40%-method”

Method B, is a combination of real costs and simplified cost options for different cost types. When using this method, you need to specify all cost categories except from “office and administration” and “travel and accommodation” where a fixed flat rate is applied. The flat rate for each of these cost categories is 15% based on staff costs.

  • Regular projects with a total budget above EUR 200 000 can choose this method if method A is not suitable due to the types of costs planned for the project.
