This page explains how to manage the list of Multiplier Events in Mobility Tool+.
Multiplier Events are national and transnational conferences, seminars and other events organised with the purpose of disseminating the intellectual outputs produced by the project. The costs incurred in the organisation of such multiplier events can be financially supported.
Support for Multiplier Events is provided only if they stand in direct relation to the Intellectual Outputs of the project. A project without grant support for Intellectual Outputs cannot receive support for organising Multiplier Events.
Click on the Multiplier Events tab in your project.
The list of Multiplier Events is displayed. Existing items can be edited or deleted, and new ones can be added.
The list shows all Multiplier Events which have been recorded in the National Agency Project Management System, but does not contain all details. These already existing Multiplier Events must be edited in order to add the costs and number of participants.
The following elements are available in the Multiplier Events screen:
Additional information on the list functionalities in Mobility Tool+ is available under MT+ List functionality .
The maximum allowed amount for all Multiplier Events within a project is 30,000€.
To add a new Multiplier Event that was not defined in the grant agreement, click on the +Create button.
At least one Intellectual Output must be selected per Multiplier Event. Therefore it is necessary to fill in the Intellectual Outputs tab first.
For school-to-school projects, only Multiplier Events for the beneficiary organisation can be created.
Complete the details as applicable for the event. All mandatory fields are marked with the orange value required label.
For Multiplier Events that are not automatically transferred from the National Agency Project Management System, select an available Event Identification code from the drop-down list. All codes ranging from E1 to E999 are listed, but if you cannot select one it is because the code is already assigned to an existing event - please check against the Event Identification column in the Multiplier Events list.
The Start/End dates for an event must always be within the project duration as specified in the project Details tab and displayed as Project Duration timeline in this screen. By default, when creating a new Multiplier Event, the Start/End date of the event are set to the project start/end dates. Adjust the Start/End dates of the event if necessary.
To save the data, click the Save button.
For information on the Force Majeure check box, please see below.
In order to create the Budget for the event, click on the +Create button in the newly displayed Budget section.
Funding is provided to cover costs linked to:
"...national and transnational conferences, seminars, events sharing and disseminating the intellectual outputs realised by the project (excluding costs for travel and subsistence of representatives of participating organisations involved in the project)."
Select the Organisation organising the event from the available drop-down list. Provide the number of Local Participants and the number of International Participants. The Grant Rate per Local Participant, Grant Rate per International Participant and Totals fields will be updated automatically. The participants are usually external to the organisation and the unit rates are not linked to the organisation, but rather depend on where the participant is coming from:
Note: For cases of Force Majeure, please see below.
Check the box Leading? if the organisation selected is the leading organisation for this event. One and only one organisation must be flagged as leading within each Multiplier Event.
Click on the Save button once all information is provided.
The event Activity screen opens. The Budget list now displays the budget information entered for the organisation.
You can create additional budget items for other participating organisations for the same event as explained above. You can only create one budget item per organisation and per event.
Click on the Edit icon to modify a budget item.

If the Force Majeure box is checked in the Multiplier Events Activity the comment field Force Majeure Explanations becomes available and must be completed. The justifications for indicating the activity as Force Majeure must be added here.
