New FP7 overhead rate for 2016

2016-05-13 17:16

By: Patrice Wegener

The Max Planck Society has issued its new overhead rate for 2016 for ongoing FP7 Collaborative Projects and Networks of Excellence.

The overhead rate in 2016, applied on top of the direct personnel costs, is 153.96% for FP7 projects funded during the calendar year. This rate will not be applicable for future EU proposals submitted under the new "HORIZON 2020" programme.
 
As a reminder, the previous years' FP7 overhead rates were:
  • 2015: 156.14% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
     
  • 2014: 148.01% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
     
  • 2013: 140% (overhead for proposals submitted during calendar year)
    2013: 149.26% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
     
  • 2012: 140% (overhead for proposals submitted during calendar year)
    2012: 147.15% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
     
  • 2011: 140% (overhead for proposals submitted during calendar year)
    2011: 138.53% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
     
  • 2010: 140% (overhead for proposals submitted during calendar year)
    2010: 134.29% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
     
  • 2009: 150% (overhead for proposals submitted during calendar year)
    2009: 133.67% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
 
The overhead has to be calculated on top of the actual project's direct personnel costs.
