6k) Are the costs of research collaborations with third parties eligible?

​The costs of research collaborations with third parties, e.g. researchers with a thematically similar project, can be charged to the grant if they are directly linked with the research project. The collaboration should be proportionate to the size of the research project and conducted by researchers employed in the project. Specific personnel, research and travel costs are eligible. Personnel costs outside the scope of the SNSF project and for non-scientific staff are not eligible, however.
