What types of expenses are covered?
According to the Work Programme, the eligible expenses may be broadly divided into:
• Eligible expenses for the activities carried out by the experienced researcher;
• Eligible expenses for the activities carried out by the host organisations and for the benefit of the experienced researcher.
The financial support for Intra-European Fellowships takes the form of a grant covering up to 100% of the budget, according to a system of flat rates for eligible cost categories, comprising the following components:

- Expenses for the activities carried out by the experienced researcher
• a monthly living allowance :
This refers to the basic monthly amount to be paid to the experienced researcher according to Table 3.1 in Annex 3 of the Work Programme. This is then adjusted, applying a correction factor for the cost of living according to the country in which s/he will be appointed, as shown in
Table 3.2 in Annex 3 of the Work Programme.

• a monthly mobility allowance
This is a monthly payment of a flat rate contribution to cover expenses related to the mobility (relocation, family expenses, language courses, travel expenses etc.). As for the living allowance, a correction factor for the cost of living of the country of execution of the project is
applied (see Table 3.2 in Annex 3 of the Work Programme). There are two reference amounts depending on the family situation of the experienced researcher at the time of the relevant deadline for submission of proposals:
• €1000/month: experienced researcher with family obligations. In this context family is defined as persons linked to the researcher by (i) marriage, or (ii) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognised by the national legislation of the country of the
host organisation or of the nationality of the researcher; or (iii) dependent children who are actually being maintained by the researcher.
• €700/month: experienced researcher without family obligations.

• a contribution to the training expenses of the eligible experienced researcher
This contribution is managed by the host organisation for expenses related to the participation of the experienced researcher in research and training activities. In principle all costs related to the successful execution of the project by the fellow (e.g. purchase of consumables,
participation in conferences and training courses, fees for scientific journals, memberships of scientific associations etc.), and which would normally not arise if the fellow was not hosted at the host organisation, are eligible. This contribution consists of a fixed amount:
• €800 per researcher-month
