New FP7 overhead rate for 2017

2017-06-08 09:35

By: Patrice Wegener

The Max Planck Society has issued its new overhead rate for 2017 for ongoing FP7 Collaborative Projects and Networks of Excellence.

The overhead rate in 2017, applied on top of the direct personnel costs, is 145.07% for FP7 projects funded during the calendar year. This rate is NOT applicable for EU proposals being submitted under the new "HORIZON 2020" programme.
 
As a reminder, the previous years' FP7 overhead rates were:
  • 2016: 153.96% (overhead for projects funded during calendar year)
     
  • 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)
 
Reminder: the FP7 overhead has to be calculated on top of the actual project's direct personnel costs. It does not apply to ERC or Marie-Curie projects!
