- Besides the reimbursement and payment requests mechanisms, the applicants can also use the new pre-financing mechanism, requesting from the IB/MA OPHC an advance payment for the financial resources necessary to cover the costs of human resources and participants, once for each 3 months;
- The salary thresholds remain similar to the ones from the Applicant’s Guidelines – General Conditions 2015;
