    Other financial info

    The source of EU funding for 2021 (as well as for the current 2022) is from two H2020 projects - CO-FRESH and FOODSAFETY4EU, whereas in 2020 it was only from CO-FRESH since the other project had not started yet. The amounts are the relative share for the respective accounting years, and not the absolute amount transferred. This is because, as known, there are only 2 or 3 transfers for the duration of the whole projects, which cover 3 or 3.5 years. Hence, the amounts have to be distributed among accounting years.
