Given that affiliated entitites will not have their own budget, would it be possible for the partner to budget for their travel costs, to enable their participation in the project meetings and other events? Would these declared costs be eligible?

Travel and accommodation costs for external experts (including speakers and invited experts) and service providers, as well as those related to associated partners and/or in-house bodies, can only be claimed under the cost category External expertise and services. For further information, please refer to the Programme Manual at pages 75-76 and to the article 42 of ETC Regulation 1059/2021.
