Guarantee funding for MSCA additional allowances for live grants

How to apply for family, long-term leave or special needs allowances if applicable for recruited researchers on grants that are live on the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system.




Use this conversion tool for any live Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) guarantee grants where a recruited researcher has become eligible for any MSCA additional allowances that weren’t included in the original application and submission to the European Research Executive Agency (REA).

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) will be following the same eligibility criteria as used by REA for the guarantee grants.

The additional allowances must be calculated by the host organisation using the same applicable unit contributions as found in the 2021 to 2022 MSCA work programme.

By submitting a request to UKRI for family, long-term leave or special needs allowances, the host organisation confirms that these costs are not being claimed from any other source, for example HM Revenue and Customs.

The host organisation will need to inform UKRI of any changes to personal circumstances which impact any additional allowances and update the requested allowances accordingly.
