The salary contribution is calculated based on the country-specific correction coefficient, as determined by the European Union on an annual basis. The Hosting Institution may have to pay a top-up to the awarded fellows from another budget source to complement this contribution.

(b) Family allowance – 500 EUR per month.
A family allowance will be paid in case the supported researcher has family obligations, In this context, family is defined as persons linked to the researcher (i) by marriage or (ii) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognised by the legislation of the country or region where this relationship is formalised or (iii) as dependent children who are actually being maintained by the researcher.
Both the Mobility and Family allowance are paid directly to the fellow.
