Complementary Activities are side activities adding a value to the project and contributing to increase its impact (e.g. seminars, conferences, coaching) and are encoded under the specific tab in Mobility Tool+.

The indirect costs of those complementary activities in Mobility Tool+ cannot be higher than 7% of the direct costs and 80% of the total costs (direct + indirect) will be covered by the grant. The total eligible amount is displayed in the budget tab and is added to the Final Beneficiary Report.
