1) Management of the relation between the Principal Investigator and the Host Institution


The Principal Investigator is a full Professor at Kozep-europai Egyetem and had a part-time contract with the host institution for teaching and research tasks assigned covering the duration of the project and reaching beyond. For the duration of the project his contract with the host has been amended to include project responsibilities. The type and arrangement of his contract reflects his French pensioner status in line with Hungarian legislation in terms of taxation and social security payments.

The Principal Investigator has received no extra remuneration form the project, in line with institutional policies. No funding for his salary costs was requested from ERC.

The provisions of the supplementary agreement have been respected.



2) Administrative support provided by the Host Institution


The Host Institution provided the Principal Investigator with the following support over the duration of the project:

-                     macro/micro grant management via the Academic Cooperation and Research Support Office

-                     micro management of the grant via the Department of History

-                     human resources assistance via the Human Resources Office

-                     financial assistance via the Budget and Finance Office

The PI has had access to office, workstations, computer, phone, Internet, photocopying, library and space/room/venue for his project meetings



3)      Budget plan and costs incurred




Costs incurred








































Explanation of costs


Personnel costs

Data collection and elaboration, preparing statistical combinations, building databases, translating, senior colleagues coordinating the different working groups in Hungary and abroad and drafting reports and material for publications.



Data collection and elaboration, statistical combinations, building data bases, analysis of data, printing preparation costs.  

When contracting partners to carry out part of the work – as per task type described above - we have followed the procedural requirements of transparency, equal treatment and best value for money. We have requested 3 price quotes at least as a rule, in some cases four, when necessary to respect institutional rules as well. Over the duration of the project we have returned to companies who have performed well beforehand and/or continued a well established working relationship, so extension of contracts has also occurred.



Simple laptops/netbooks, hard disk drives, cameras have been purchased for solely data collection and safe data storage and backup purposes. Because much of the work has been carried out in archives and libraries in Hungary and abroad, these pieces of hardware proved indispensable for the registration of data in printed format and protection of data processed. These pieces of equipment are considered small scale equipment according to the normal accounting practice of our institutions, so multi-annual depreciation costs were not reported.



We reported small recurring consumables related to mass data collection such as USB drives, cords, floppies, etc., which should not be considered as of normal office supplies but tools directly supporting the realization of project related tasks. 



Comparatively little money was spent for travelling of team members as research trips and visits were paid from other sources. Foreign partners’ short trips to Hungary are the main items in this category.



Publication costs were reported under subcontracting or personnel in technical format. Under the former printing preparation costs, while under the latter translation costs were incurred.



In this category we reported archives- and library-related costs such as photocopying, entry fees, tickets, passes and the like.


Significant deviation:

Personnel vs. publications

As part of the amendment requested at the end of the project we have requested the reallocation of publication costs to personnel. Publication costs have been incurred as subcontracting and personnel costs in technical format, therefore under publications.



4) Reallocation of costs

The duration of the project has been extended by three months. Along with the amendment concerning the extra months, we have requested and been granted the possibility to reallocate some costs between categories as it seemed reasonable. Please, see documentation of the amendment for details.




5) Adjustment

An adjustment Form C is submitted along with the Form C for Period 2. In this adjustment we indicate the sum of interest generated on pre-financing in the Period 1, which - due to a technical mistake - has not been reported before.



6) Recommendations

There were no recommendations from audits or technical reviews.



7) Legal status

The legal status of the Host Institution has not changed.




A global overview of the project's implementation for the reporting period, problems including delay, cancellation, postponement of activities/work tasks and their solution


During the last period of our Project we could realize all the research objectives – even somewhat beyond those planned in the application -, but we are still much behind schedule with the publications planned. This is due to the length and the unexpected complexities of the statistical data elaboration and analysis, especially in the larger part of the project concerning Hungary and its regions detached after 1919. For the publication of the research reports a special collection of books in English has been established (Research Reports on Central European History, Pasts Inc. Centre for Historical Studies of the History Department of the Central European University, Budapest, eduted by victor Karady and Peter Tibor Nagy). The collection should have a paperback edition and accessibility via internet.

            For the two Baltic societies full fledged reports could be realised based on the vast collection of prosopographical data on students of the Latvian University (1919-1947) and the University of Tartu (1880-1947) as well as other institutions of higher education in Tartu (Rostopcev University – 1902-1916, Veterinary School – 1880-1918). Both reports are included in the above collection of books. 

            For Hungary and its regions detached after 1919 the prosopographical data collection has been achieved comprising the following main sectors :

- pupils of the graduating classes of secondary education (1850-1919) and a large sample of the same in post Trianon Hungary (1919-1949) together with pupils of the 1st classes in the same institution for a number of sample years (since 1860 to 1945-46),

- students and graduates (including Catholic Theology) of the University of Budapest (cc. 1870-1948) and the Polytechnical University of Budapest (1872-1949),

- students and graduates of the Hungarian University in Kolozsvár/Cluj (1872-1918) and the Romanian University in the same city (1919-1948),

- students and graduates of the new Hungarian universities in Debrecen, Pécs and Szeged (cc. 1914-1948) as well as the Slovakian Komenius University in Bratislava (1919-1948),

- students and graduates of all the vocational academies in Hungary (cc. 1870-1949) including law academies and colleges of agricultural, military, commercial, artistic training,

- students from Hungary abroad (in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands, cc. 1850-1918),

- additionally (for the comparative study of students from the Voivodina) large samples of students in the medical and law faculties of Belgrade and Zagreb Universities (cc. 1920-1947),

- additionally and for purposes of comparison, some large prosopographical data banks on selected elite clusters in Hungary, like members of freemason lodges (cc. 1860-1930), those of the ‘Vitéz’ Order (1921-1939), fellows of the Romanian-Hungarian Gojdu Foundation (1871-1918), etc. as well as some student bodies in periods outside the chronological scope of our Project (students from Hungary in universities of the Austrian and the German Empire – 1890-1850, or medical graduates of the University of Budapest – 1770-1850).

Direct costs should be detailed as below.




This table corresponds to "Resources - Table 1" contained in Annex I to the Grant agreement and it is needed to monitor the budget consumption of your project. Consequently, please complete the table below in 2 stages:

1. Start with encoding the actual costs in the columns corresponding to the present and past (if necessary) reporting period/s. For example, if you are preparing the report of Period 1 you will input the costs incurred in the column "months 1-18" or "months 1-9".

2. Complete the table with a provisional budget allocation for each remaining period.

Please keep in mind that the total must always match the Max EU contribution as set in art. 5 of the grant agreement.

The carry-forward of unused funds from, for example, period 1 to period 2 is of course possible but explanations for relevant deviations (over or under spending)  and re-allocation in between budget categories should be given in Chapter 1 "project management".




For a single beneficiary project the beneficiary should submit the financial statement using the template provided. If special clause 10 applies to your Grant Agreement, please also include a separate financial statement from each third party as well.


For a multi-beneficiary project, the principal beneficiary should submit a separate financial statement from each beneficiary (if Special Clause 10 applies to your Grant Agreement, please include a separate financial statement from each third party as well) together with a summary financial report which consolidates the claimed Community financial contribution of all the beneficiaries in an aggregate form, based on the information provided in the Financial Statement by each beneficiary.


When applicable, certificates on financial statements shall be submitted by the concerned beneficiaries according to Article II.4.5 of the single beneficiary grant agreement, or Article

II.4.6 of the multi-beneficiary grant agreement.





Please make sure that you use the correct form corresponding to your project. Templates for the Financial Statements are provided in Annex IV of the Grant Agreement.

[3]   According to the art.180.2 of the IR and the art II.4.5 of the ERCGA, a Certificate on the Financial Statements (CFS) is mandatory for every claim (interim or final) in the form of reimbursement of costs whenever the amount of the Community financial contribution is equal or superior to EUR 375,000 (cumulative total of all previous payments for the same project for which a CFS has not yet been submitted). Once a CFS is submitted, the threshold of EUR 375,000 applies again for subsequent Community financial contributions but the count starts from 0.  In case of a multibeneficiary grant agreement (special clause 30) this threshold is to be applied per beneficiary. In case of a third party linked to the beneficiary (special clause 10) the threshold of € 375 000 is calculated as the sum of costs of the beneficiary and the third party.
