Can equipment be purchased using the account for non-personnel costs?
Equipment up to a value of €800.00 (including VAT) can be purchased using funds for non-personnel costs.
Pieces of equipment costing more than €800.00 are subject to the new equipment process and must be purchased by the respective research institution that has an agreement with the FWF. These costs can be reimbursed afterwards by the FWF from the respective project funds by means of a detailed reimbursement process.
Please note: From 1 January 2021 the purchase limit will increase up to €1,500.00.
