Which types of eligible costs are allowed to be entered under “service costs” in the excel sheet?
Posted by EuroRIs-Net Administrator on 14 October 2008 09:40 AM

First, it is important to distinguish between “Trans-national access” and “Service activities” (see Work Programme for more information). After specifying this one can talk about which costs are eligible (and which excel table one has to use for the calculation). The excel sheets can be found on Cordis. Examples of service costs that can be included:


  • Consumables – YES (if direct related to Trans-national access)

  • Maintenance – YES

  • Utilities – YES

  • Equipment necessary for access (e.g. VR glasses) – MAYBE (only if no major costs)

  • Subcontracting costs (e.g. IT services provision) – MAYBE (only if direct related to Trans-national access)

  • Marketing, printing, brochures, publicity material – NO (this should be included in dissemination/exploitation activities)
