Totals per project

The first part of the screen includes the total amounts calculated at project level regarding the participants and various budget items:

All amounts are read-only, except:

  • the reported Mobility Activity Organisational Support (without Inclusion Support for the Organisation): this field is prefilled with the maximum allowed amount, which is calculated based on the number of participants in the project, but it can be modified. If you enter an amount higher than the maximum allowed, an error message will display on the screen. 
  • the reported  Exceptional costs for financial guarantee: if the National Agency has asked you to provide a financial guarantee, type the real costs incurred related to the guarantee, in the dedicated field.

If you edit these amounts, click the Save button at the bottom of the screen to preserve your changes and update the budget totals.

The Total project number of participants only include those involved in individual mobility activities. Participants in blended intensive programmes are listed separately in the Blended intensive programmes section.

The Total Reported Budget is calculated automatically as the sum of grant items and reported costs, respectively, from Mobility activities, Mobility Activity Organisational Support, Exceptional Costs for the Financial Guarantee and Blended Intensive Programme Organisational Support.

You will only see the activity types and budget items for which the awarded grant and/or the reported costs are higher than zero, and only  completed mobility activities are taken into account in the calculations.

Budget breakdown for mobility activities

Each activity type is listed as a section, aggregating all budget data for all the mobility activities of that type implemented in the project. You can click on the dedicated up/down arrows to collapse/expand each section, respectively.

"International mobility activities" overview

At the bottom of the screen you can view:

  • the International mobility activities maximum budget - this is the maximum amount that can be allocated to international mobility activities and is calculated as 20% of the latest awarded budget, after having deducted the Inclusion Support for Participants and the Exceptional Cost for Expensive Travel for international mobility  activities. 
  • the International mobility activities budget - this is the amount used for international mobility activities up to the current date.
  • a blue progress bar indicating the share of the maximum awarded budget that has been used so far for international mobilities.
