The salary consists of the gross Monthly Living Allowance of 3,110 EUR per month pondered by the EU correction coefficient (specific for the countries where the enrolling Institutions are located, available at http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/other/mga/tmpl/h2020-annex2a-tmpl-estim-budget_en.pdf); in addition, a Mobility Allowance of 600 EUR per month will be paid, and also possibly another 500 EUR per month of Family Allowance depending on marital status.
