The following general principles apply to funding under the 3rd Health Programme:

  • Co-financing rule: you need to have your own financial resources or financial resources of third parties to contribute to the costs of the action;
  • Non-profit rule: the grant may not have the purpose or effect of producing a profit for you;
  • Non-retroactivity rule: you can get co-funding only  for the costs incurred after the starting date stipulated in the grant agreement;
  • Non-cumulative rule: each action may give rise to the award of only one grant to any one beneficiary (you cannot get paid twice for the same cost).
