Die TU Wien verwendet im 6. EU-Rahmenprogramm das "Additional direct costs with flat rate for indirect costs model" (AC):
All eligible direct additional costs and a flat rate for indirect costs are charged. The flat rate is 20% of all direct additional costs minus the cost of sub-contracts.
Direct additional costs, are eligible costs additional to the normal recurring costs of the contractor that are associated directly to the project and are not covered by any other sources of funding. Direct additional costs of personnel can include:
- personnel with a temporary contract for working under the Community contract concerned;
- personnel with a temporary contract with a view to completing a doctorate;
- personnel whose employment contract depends wholly or in part on additional external financing. In this case, costs charged to the project must exclude all costs covered by normal recurring financing.
