Project-Based Remuneration Internal Guidelines template 


The Czech Legal and Financial NCPs have prepared a new template for Czech beneficiaries that can serve as a guide for the development of an organisation's internal rules for the payment of project based supplementary payment under the Horizon Europe programme. This document has been designed to streamline the process of calculating eligible personnel costs under project-based remuneration.   

Czech institutions using project-based remuneration that implement this template guidelines  no longer have to calculate averages from closed years (fall-back option) when calculating the national reference rate, but rather use objective figures set in advance by their own internal guidelines. 

In March TC Prague will organise a Czech two-hour online information event to present the content of this guide in more detail. It will also include a discussion with representatives of national grant providers on the impact of the implementation of this Directive in their programmes. More information and registration for the event can be found here.
