Is it possible to cover expenses in one applicant’s budget (e.g.travel costs) for participants from other countries than the Programme area countries, provided that they have knowledge and expertise that is needed for project implementation?

Travel expenses are eligible, regardless whether such costs are incurred and paid in or outside the Programme area, as long as they relate with the project’s delivery and are essential for the project activities.

In case an expert provides external service to the Project Partner, he/she shall include its travel and all relating costs in its service contract fee.
