    Complementary Information

    Explanation of calculation:

    The 100%: 4 people involved 50 pct. of their working time (2x100 pct)
    The 50%: 6 people involved 25 pct. + 1 person involved 50% of their working time

    The 10%: Numerous people (approx. 60) involved with EU lobbying 5-10 pct. of their working time.

    Aggregated working time spent in DI is therefore 7.4 FTEs.
