I am a member and a project partner, what fee do I pay?
When you are a member and a project partner, you pay the Variable Fee and the Membership Fee. The Membership Fee depends on your organisation type and the Variable Fee in 2016 is 2.4% on the maximal possible funding. More information can be found on: membership
You are probably a member of multiple associations connected to ECSEL-JU. This means that the Variable Fee is split by the amount of memberships you have. In case you are a member of AENEAS, Inside and EPoSS, the total maximal funding is divided in three. Each association calculates the Variable Fee percentage over the equally divided number. In case of Inside the Variable Fee in 2016 is 2.4% for members.
In 2014 funding instruments ARTEMIS-JU and ENIAC-JU merged into ECSEL-JU. This development turned the Inside Industry Association (previously ARTEMIS-IA) into one of the three private partners in ECSEL Joint Undertaking. The three industry associations (private partners) represent actors from the areas of Embedded Intelligence, Smart Systems and Micro-/Nanoelectronics.
