European Commission rules on the award of Euratom research grants under the European Union’s incoming Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) suggest grant recipients can recover audited indirect costs.

Under the existing sixth programme, consortia can claim flat rate grants to cover indirect costs, covering administration and other support staff, but these might not reflect actual expenditure. With the development of more sophisticated accounting, the commission has suggested that for FP7, “participants can charge all their direct and indirect costs,” (retaining flat rate options).
