With reference to the announcements of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Chief Sanitary Inspectorate concerning epidemiological risk caused by coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the National Science Centre recommends to consider rescheduling trips to foreign research centres funded under the calls announced by the National Science Centre.
If research stays can be rescheduled, the National Science Centre must be notified of the new dates in order to annex the funding agreements for doctoral scholarships and funding agreements for fellowships in foreign research teams using ERC grants.
A foreign fellowship carried out in a foreign research centre located in a state at epidemiological risk can be shortened or continued at another time. In such a case, the National Science Centre must be notified about it as soon as possible in order to appropriately amend the agreements implemented under the ETIUDA and UWERTURA calls.
Any travel expenses incurred due to traveling to the states at epidemiological risk to carry out NCN-funded research projects will be deemed eligible costs.
