Q:

General permanent staff who receive their salary under employment contracts and the costs are funded from the core activities of the institution usually carry out research under national or university research programmes or deliver lectures to the students. In case of involvement in the Community project, such staff cannot continue theirs daily activities; therefore, funding from the university core activities is suspended and salaries are paid from the Community contribution. Will be such costs considered as eligible costs? (Usually PhD students are paid from national resources, therefore participation of PhD students in the Community project will be assigned as partner contribution.)

A:

Please refer to a previous answer:

However, we would like to add that "suspending" contracts of permanent staff is not enough to show change of funding for their salary. They need to be "dismissed" from permanent staff, loose rights under the previous contract, and have contracts dependent in full (or in part) on outside funding. No outside funding = no employment.
