How do the "Transnational access and/or service" activities of the I3 model work and what costs are covered under this scheme?

User fees (i.e. Unit costs) do not include travel and subsistence costs of the users. These have to be put into "other direct costs" (in column where also the Access costs are filled in). Consortia have more options of whom to give the money:

- Each Infrastructure providing access gets a share of the travel budget and distributes it to the visiting research groups (users)

- The Coordinator gets the budget in trust and the research groups submit the according receipts to the coordinator

- A "Transnational Access Coordinator" holds the travel budget

The travel costs have to be estimated according to the amount of access provided and some average costs
