The EU has a research fellowship program named after Physicist Marie Skłodowska-Curie. The website lacks a bunch of information, but I'm specifically interested in understanding what kind of funding it actually provides in the Individual Fellowship (IF) track. The linked-to-page says:
The grant provides an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs. In addition, the EU contributes to the training, networking and research costs of the fellow, as well as to the management and indirect costs of the project.
If you've received such a grant, participated in fund allocation, or saw the "books" at a hosting institution, I'd like to know more about what amounts of money they're talking about.
Specific points you could elaborate on:
- Is the funding a lump sum? Per-year? Per-month?
- Is the host institute's part figured as a percentage of the overall funding? Independently of it?
- Do the applicants (individual + institution) ask for certain amounts, or does the program set them?
- If it's the latter, what are the fixed amounts? Or the criteria for setting them?
- Can you give a specific/typical example (no personal identifying information please) of the amount of funds some researcher, and their hosting institute, have gotten?
Obviously - no need to address all of the points.
