Secondment Agreement Msca

Of all the projects supported by Horizon 2020, ITNs are particularly affected by the COVID 19 pandemic, as international mobility is an essential part of the training programme. Many meetings and trainings had to be cancelled or postponed, and detachments cannot proceed as planned. That creates a lot of uncertainty. In which you may read: “However, your employer should not use the resources allocated to your livelihood, mobility or family allowances to pay, for example.B. tuition fees, health costs (via compulsory social security contributions) or secondment fees (travel, accommodation, etc.). At the end of your scholarship, you must have received the amounts due to you, as shown below, less the legal (legal) tax and social security deductions (employer and wage contributions). “It seems that my institution does not reimburse tum housing in detachments because they say they are included in the mobility and living allowance. That means you`re paying it on your salary. I would like to reopen the issue of housing costs after the posting. In this case, for MSCA-Individual Fellow.

I think it will be interesting for everyone with an MSCA with detachments to clarify some of the issues related to reimbursement. It is recommended that coordinators and recipients cooperate to ensure that all planned activities can be carried out during the planned duration of the project, even if they are delayed. Once the situation has stabilized, extensions can be granted to allow for delayed tasks, events, meetings and/or detachments. Such cases are also reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the REA. For secondments, the CoSP offers researchers from European Union recipient organisations mobility grants that will be seconded to partner institutions abroad. The coordinator should inform the project manager if it is necessary to deviate from the order of work, as it would require an amendment to the grant agreement. But, I found this text:… Due to restrictions imposed by many governments and institutions, detachments may be deferred. If an ERC, currently on secondment, were to return to its country of origin, it is the responsibility of the recipient and the host institute to agree or not. The safety of fellows should be your number one concern. Under this text, detachments cannot be paid in terms of demand and mobility. I think this should be clarified properly so that we have a strong response to the German institutions.

This means that even the results generated by your colleague during the secondment would belong to your institution under the standard rules in the grant agreement. In other words, your partner organization is not automatically entitled to IPRs on the results developed during the posting, because it is not a beneficiary in the project, but a simple third party that does not employ the researcher in the action, but only offers additional training and hosts it during the secondment. I have an IF MSCA scholarship and am currently planning a one-month secondment. I went to my research officer to find out how to cover the costs, and here is their answer: however, this standard rule is not always compatible with the internal policies of a third-party institution. Indeed, it is not uncommon for partner organizations to require that they be granted ownership of the results of the detachment, as this requires their IP policy. That is why, and to avoid deadlock, your institution should take a flexible approach. Since your partner may not be informed of your own obligations under the grant agreement, you should clarify this point in advance and outline your rights and obligations regarding ownership, access, protection, use and dissemination.
