Can a UK registered non-profit organisation apply in the next I3 Call, if the actual infrastructure (a research vessel) is based in Hong Kong?

The minimum conditions for participation in this funding scheme are: At least 3 independent legal entities, each of which is established in a Member State (MS) or associated country (AC), and no two of which are established in the same MS or AC. So the essential question concerns the legal status of the organisation: is the institution a legal entity established in the UK and is it owner of the research vessel? If this is the case the institution is eligible to participate.

In addition to the eligibility of the institution, the eligibility of the costs of the institution has to be considered: employees should be on the pay-roll of the institution and equipment should be owned by the institution. Otherwise it will be subcontracting, or the consortium has to include the organisation owning the equipment taking into account the minimum criteria.
