The Secondments tab is needed in the continuous reporting of MSCA-IF projects (it is not currently made available for periodic reporting).
The Secondment tab lets the beneficiary declare the periods during which the Researcher is seconded to an institution different from the Recruiting organisation and, for Global Fellowships, different from the Hosting organisation for the Outgoing phase of the Grant.
A secondment is a time period during which the Hosting Organisation sends the Researcher to a different company/institution, external to the project. The information about the secondment is not defined in the Grant Agreement, so it will be entered as part of the Continuous Reporting
A secondment can cover any time period within a Recruitment Phase, and can be split into different time periods, with different working commitments and interruptions. At any moment, the work time commitment for a secondment must match the work time commitment defined for the same days in the Recruitment.

This operation allows you to add a new IF Secondment and a Supervisor.
The Secondments tab contains four tables:
- Project Recruitment Periods
- Project Secondment Periods
The table contains read-only data concerning the researcher (as made available in the Grant Agreement):
By using this section, the user can can specify the details of a Supervisor who follows the Researcher during the activity.
If a Researcher has had different supervisors in different periods, it is possible to specify all of them, with their start and end date.
Please make sure that the periods during which the supervisors were active do not overlap.
The current supervisor should be specified without an end date.
The Cover Page of the Periodic Report will now include information about the Researcher's Supervisor, if any was provided.

Adding a Secondment
When creating a new Secondment, if there is only one organisation available, the organisation will be automatically selected as the Sending Organisation.
* If the system finds that the starting date of the secondment falls in a Reporting Period for which the Periodic Report was already submitted, it will show a confirmation pop-up alerting the user that the Recruitment/Secondment work period overlaps with an already closed Reporting Period. The user may confirm and proceed with editing the Secondment period.
