Is it acceptable if a project does not give additional research budget but gives other kind of support such as trainings, secondments, infrastructures, access to materials, tools, machines, other institutions?
Yes, it’s acceptable. The contributions can be financial or in-kind, but they must be detailed and reassured via letters of commitment from the concerned institutions (mandatory for associated partners and highly encouraged for implementing partners). It will be up to the evaluators to assess it.
