:::: The COST Association Administration, together with the Governance is working on improving the situation as of the next Grant Agreement (starting 01/05/2017). To do so,
 +
:::: the COST Association will adapt the pre-financing percentage stated in the COST Action Grant Agreement and in the COST Vademecum. This will imply also an improvement
 +
:::: of the timing of payments to be done in order to better align with the payment modalities of the European Commission.

== CA15203 Drafting Work and Budget Plan for COST Action for Grant Period 1 (2016-11-01 to 2017-04-30) ==
::::The Scientific Committee suggested that the proposed Action must develop and implement specific plans to '''increase  the involvement of Early Career Investigators and for maintaining and monitoring  gender balance'''. Furthermore, we will need a '''balance of Participants from all the Working Groups in the MC''', so that all WGs are  represented well in the course of the Action. For more information, see » [[Join the COST Action CA15203 MITOEAGLE]].
 
  
::::Therefore, please ask your COST National  Coordinator (CNC) to take this into consideration when nominating the MC Members  and Substitutes. To achieve an optimum balance in choosing your MC Members, it may be best practice to list all national COST Participants when contacting your  CNC. For the list of participants, see

 +
:::: Please click on the link below to log into e-cost and follow the instructions to draft the Work and Budget Plan for this Grant Period. You will only be able to encode activities that occur during the Grant Period and are permitted under the COST rules.
 +
:::: https://e-services.cost.eu/action/CA15203/2137/wbp/instructions
 +
:::: e-COST will prompt you to enter a justification for any activities that require an exceptional approval from the COST Association or if the budget that you encode exceeds the allocated budget. These request and justifications will then be reviewed by the COST Association.
 +
:::: After the first Management Committee meeting the Work and Budget Plan will be revised by the person elected Chair by the Management Committee and submitted for review by the COST Association. Once approved by the COST Association it will be automatically sent for MC approval via the e-COST based MC online approval tool and the Grant Agreement documentation will be prepared.

Payment modalities for COST Actions

The following message was sent by the COST association to the Grant Holder on November 3 to explain the change in payment modalities:
Dear Grant Holder,
We are contacting you concerning the COST Action Grant Agreement which has been signed between your institution and the COST Association. Following the rules which are
applicable to the Specific Grant Agreement signed between the European Commission and the COST Association, and in line with the Article 5.4 of the Grant Agreement, we
regret to inform you that the second instalment (as foreseen in the article 5.3 Grant Agreement, amounting to up to 35% of the Grant amount) will have to be postponed until the
approval of the Yearly Financial Report of your Action. We would like to inform you that the following decision is necessary to facilitate the efficient running of the
financial management of COST.
The COST Association Administration, together with the Governance is working on improving the situation as of the next Grant Agreement (starting 01/05/2017). To do so,
the COST Association will adapt the pre-financing percentage stated in the COST Action Grant Agreement and in the COST Vademecum. This will imply also an improvement
of the timing of payments to be done in order to better align with the payment modalities of the European Commission.
In practical terms, it means that instead of disbursing the pre-financing in two tranches:
* First pre-financing of 65% at the beginning of the period
* Second pre-financing of 35% around month 8 of the Grant period based on the actual need of the Action
The COST Association would do three payments:
* First pre-financing of 50% depending on the first date of planned activities
* Second pre-financing of 35% around month 8 of the Grant Period, depending on the need of the Action based on the Intermediate Financial Report
* Last payment of up to 15% based on the Yearly Financial Report, after the end of the Grant Period
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the AO or the SO of your Action.
Kind Regards
Adrien Routelous
Head of Science Administration and Finance

CA15203 Drafting Work and Budget Plan for COST Action for Grant Period 1 (2016-11-01 to 2017-04-30)

Dear Prof Erich Gnaiger,
The COST Association has allocated a budget of 68000 EUR for COST Action for Grant Period 1 (2016-11-01 to 2017-04-30).
Please click on the link below to log into e-cost and follow the instructions to draft the Work and Budget Plan for this Grant Period. You will only be able to encode activities that occur during the Grant Period and are permitted under the COST rules.
https://e-services.cost.eu/action/CA15203/2137/wbp/instructions
e-COST will prompt you to enter a justification for any activities that require an exceptional approval from the COST Association or if the budget that you encode exceeds the allocated budget. These request and justifications will then be reviewed by the COST Association.
After the first Management Committee meeting the Work and Budget Plan will be revised by the person elected Chair by the Management Committee and submitted for review by the COST Association. Once approved by the COST Association it will be automatically sent for MC approval via the e-COST based MC online approval tool and the Grant Agreement documentation will be prepared.
If you have any questions please contact the Science Officer for CA15203, Dr Federica Ortelli ([email protected])
