4 Issues Development projects, but can produce research output - good starting point Main problem - programmes are only partly funded on the basis of the subsidiarity principle. At most 75% of the cost is provided and the rest has to be in-kind. Complex form-filling and reporting Often useful projects, but at best can cover costs of staff and non- staff costs Budget max - around 300k Partnership-based - usually 3+ other EU countries Easier to be a partner rather than leader Development projects, but can produce research output - good starting point Main problem - programmes are only partly funded on the basis of the subsidiarity principle.

10 Tips Dont be daunted by the bureaucracy Be a partner rather than a leader and make it known that you are available Be careful in who you partner with, choosing people who will deliver Budget carefully and use funding to recoup your own salary Do not provide matched-funding for anything other than costs of established staff Plan to generate publications on top of the development Ask for advice from R&E and from me Dont be daunted by the bureaucracy Be a partner rather than a leader and make it known that you are available Be careful in who you partner with, choosing people who will deliver Budget carefully and use funding to recoup your own salary Do not provide matched-funding for anything other than costs of established staff Plan to generate publications on top of the development Ask for advice from R&E and from me
