Unlike most other project types in the Horizon2020, you cannot apply for coverage of salary costs through these training networks. Instead, a fixed sum is given for salary. The difference between the payment from the project and actual salary cost for a PhD at UoB is approximately 200.000 NOK/year. This difference was formerly covered through NFR’s supplementary financing of Marie Curie candidates with the so-called IS-TOPP scheme. It appears that this scheme will no longer be available in the Horizon2020.
The management wants the University’s communities to apply, and therefore will UoB warrant for these costs – if the scheme from NFR is removed.
