Recording working hours in H2020 Clear rules are defined concerning the time recording for employees involved in H2020 project work. Working hours must be documented for personnel costs which are to be claimed. This is not compulsory for people who work 100% on the project, but we recommend it. Minimum specifications on recording working hours: Name of the contractor according to the Grant Agreement (University of St.Gallen, Institute XYZ) Full name of the employee Project title in accordance with the EU Grant Agreement Internal project account number Interval for recording man hours (usually monthly) Hours worked on the project - these must be reliably provable Name and signature of a superior (project owner) Comparison with other projects It should be possible to reconsiliate the registered time with other projects that the employees concerned are working on. As a result, you can show that no more than 100% of the working hours are charged. Forms To record the time, we recommend to use the EU form, also accepted by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI). Final report To make it easier to draw up the final report, we recommend allocating the hours to the different work packages. Hourly rate The hourly rate in H2020 projects will be calculated the same throughout the University by using the 1'720 average productive annual hours recommended by the EU.
