Q: My ERC project involves some work to be carried out at another institution by personnel of the other institution working for the ERC project under the supervision of the PI. These tasks will be carried out on the premises of the other institution. Can I involve the other institution as third party to the PIs host institution and claim the personnel costs of the collaborator of the other institution or do I need to involve the other institution as additional beneficiary?


A: The other institution does not need to be included as beneficiary for personnel costs to be eligible, but can act as 3rd party to the PIs host institution, even if the person keeps working on the premises of the other institution, as long as the person works under the instructions of the PI.
