What is the timeframe for eligibility of expenditure?


From a time-wise perspective, expenditure is eligible according to the following three phases:

  • Project Preparation and Contracting Phase: Costs for the preparation and contracting of an approved project can be compensated through a lump sum.

  • Project Implementation Phase: Costs for the implementation of an approved project are eligible from its start date until its end date as set in the approved application form.

  • Project Closure Phase: Costs referring to these activities are eligible and must be paid by the deadline for submitting the last joint progress and joint finance reports as set in the subsidy contract.
